The results of this analysis confirm that ambulatory syndromic surveillance
detected increases in ILI activity during both phases of the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 spring outbreak in NYC.
three laboratory-confirmed norovirus outbreaks) were detected through initial screening at a camp sponsored by the same organization in 2001; however, no additional GI illness outbreaks were identified by the syndromic surveillance
system implemented at that camp (1).
has been implemented to provide early recognition of a bioterrorist attack and in other settings in which an epidemic potential exists (8).
systems use statistical algorithms to alert users when the number of reports for a syndrome exceeds the norm (6).
The validity of chief complaint and discharge diagnosis in emergency department-based syndromic surveillance
ED syndromic surveillance
typically uses a patient's chief complaint (CC) as recorded by a triage nurse.
Assessment of a syndromic surveillance
system based on morbidity data: results from the Oscour network during a heat wave.
demonstrated a sharp increase in overdoses reported by EDs on June 5 (Figure).
is well-established in Sint Maarten, with seven sentinel sites throughout the country reporting cases of undifferentiated fever (UDF) to the General Health Care Section of the Department of Collective Prevention Services at the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour (Ministerie van Volksgezondheid, Sociale Ontwikkeling en Arbeid Zaken, VSA) in Philipsburg.
Although syndromic surveillance
is capable of detecting ARIs outbreaks timely and are not dependent on Lab-based outbreak detection, we argue that lack of PVP leads to non-compliance to the objective of the system.
The researchers also determined that Zika virus was circulating in Rio de Janeiro as early as January 2015 - "at least five months before its detection was announced by the health authorities, which must be taken into consideration for future design and implementation of effective syndromic surveillance
systems," they wrote.
