West Virginia Electronic Disease Surveillance System
is the State of West Virginia's response to the NEDSS (National Electronic
Disease Surveillance System) initiative. Still in the planning stages,

response activities in West Virginia and minimize or eliminate the delays
inherent in current paper-based systems. Although WVEDSS will
eventually support all disease surveillance in West Virginia, it will
initially focus on infectious, reportable diseases.
