Joint PH Forum & CDC Webinar: NYC Macroscope Electronic Health Record Surveillance System: Preliminary Validation Results

Session Title: NYC Macroscope Electronic Health Record Surveillance System: Preliminary Validation Results

Date: Thursday, August 20, 2015

Time: 3:00 pm Eastern Time / 2:00 pm Central Time / 1:00 pm Mountain Time / 12:00 pm Pacific Time

Session Description: Data from electronic health records offer great promise for expanding the coverage, scope and granularity of population health surveillance, but little is known about how EHR-based measures should be defined and interpreted outside of the syndromic surveillance context. Here we describe the New York City Macroscope Electronic Health Record Surveillance system and our work to validate it against contemporaneous data from the New York City Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, and present population-level validation study results for smoking, and for hypertension prevalence, treatment and control.
