The CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) is a program of studies designed to assess the health and nutritional status of adults and children in the United States. The survey is unique in that it combines interviews and physical examinations.
Gunnison has been supporting the NHANES and its continuous technological innovations for over 15 years. Gunnison helped develop the system architecture and telecommunications infrastructure for the NHANES, the hallmark of which is several fully automated Mobile Exam Centers which travel around the nation collecting health information on approximately 5,000 sampled people each year. The NHANES infrastructure consists of over 50 tightly integrated management, interview, examination, laboratory information and data analysis subsystems.
Gunnison continues to support the project today providing software development expertise, database administration, and software testing services.
