Simplicity by design
Public Health professionals are committed to overseeing their region’s overall health—a critically important job that does not need to be muddied with concerns regarding IT and complicated syndromic surveillance systems.

HMS works closely with Public Health departments across the United States. We’ve taken the time to listen to our clients—and to learn what will make their jobs easier.

What we’ve heard is that Simplicity is key. And that a syndromic surveillance system must provide instant access to valuable data—while satisfying Meaningful Use requirements.


The EpiStart Syndromic Surveillance System provides trusted, tested service in the areas of:
  • Technology Support – EpiStart is a web-based software as a service (SaaS) model. Users have instant access to the information they need most—and are not burdened with complex software installations or ongoing maintenance issues.
  • Secure Data Transfer Setup - HMS oversees the integration of data feeds from hospitals and eligible providers in your region. The only requirement of the health department is to supply a list of healthcare providers who will be taking part in the EpiStart service.
  • Real-Time Access to Data - EpiStart is an online system that’s never more than a few clicks away. EpiStart delivers automated notifications of potential health concerns that provides peace of mind to busy public health professionals—they can be assured that EpiStart is constantly monitoring the pulse of their community.
  • Customer Support - As the industry leader in health monitoring and syndromic surveillance, HMS has amassed a team with unparalleled expertise in the field. These experts are available to our clients to ensure that any questions, issues, or concerns they may have are addressed fully and completely.
Let HMS help you to turn your Meaningful Use plans into a simple-to-enable, data-rich reality. We will work with you to get your syndromic surveillance system up and running in the most cost effective and time efficient manner possible.
