Health Protection Surveillance Centre: Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting System (CIDR)

Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting System (CIDR)

Designed, developed and built by Fujitsu

City and Hackney NHS
HPSC went out to tender for the design of the system and then for the development and build and Fujitsu won both contracts. The result was a Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting System (CIDR) which provides an integrated approach to disease surveillance. 

Designed to detect health threats and trends more quickly, CIDR not only manages the surveillance and control of infectious diseases in Ireland but also monitors the ability of organisms to resist antibiotic drugs. It is a shared national information system for the Health Service Executive (HSE), the HPSC, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, the Food Safety Promotion Board and the Department of Health and Children.

Fujitsu's key design principles for CIDR were security, flexibility and the provision of an enterprise-wide reporting capability. To achieve vital security of the confidential medical data, Fujitsu employed two-factor authentication to extend basic authentication using RSA ACEServer and SecurID tokens integrated with Microsoft Active Directory over SSL encrypted communications.
