Massachusetts Virtual Epidemiologic Network (MAVEN) is a web-based disease surveillance and case management system that enables MDPH and local health to capture and transfer appropriate public health, laboratory, and clinical data efficiently and securely over the Internet in real-time. The system interfaces with Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR) efforts, has automatic (24/7/365) notification of state and local officials of any event requiring their attention and geographic information system (GIS) activities. MAVEN will replace the current paper-based methods of data exchange between MDPH, local public health, and clinicians. For more information please contact
