Release of New Issue Brief: “Syndromic Surveillance System Functionality: Recommendations from NACCHO’s Ad Hoc Biosurveillance Workgroup”

NACCHO’s Informatics Team is pleased to announce the release of a new issue brief on syndromic surveillance system functionality. Syndromic surveillance systems have been proliferating since the late 1990s. Although a framework for evaluating syndromic surveillance systems has been published, to date no documents provide guidance on the functionalities that syndromic surveillance systems should include. This document contains recommendations from NACCHO’s Ad Hoc Biosurveillance Advisory Group on essential components that a syndromic surveillance system ought to include to be considered fully functional. If you have any questions regarding this issue brief or would like more information please contact Sarah Chughtai by email at schughtai@naccho.org or by phone at 202-595-1129.
