An Integrated Mosquito Surveillance Module in New York State


There were several stand-alone vector surveillance applications being used by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to support the reporting of mosquito, bird, and mammal surveillance and infection information implemented in early 2000s in response to West Nile virus. In subsequent years, the Electronic Clinical Laboratory Reporting System (ECLRS) and the Communicable Disease Electronic Surveillance System (CDESS) were developed and integrated to be used for surveillance and investigations of human infectious diseases and management of outbreaks.

An integrated vector surveillance system project was proposed to address the migration of the stand-alone vector surveillance applications into a streamlined, consolidated solution to support operational, management, and technical needs by using the national standards with the existing resources and technical environment.


To develop a mosquito surveillance module to collect mosquito information testing for West Nile, East Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and Zika viruses using national standards. To provide a common set of data for local health departments (LHDs) and state users to report and share information. To monitor the type of mosquito species that carry diseases.
