Preliminary Analysis of Stakeholder Response to the “Call for Potential Uses of Public Health Syndromic Surveillance”

Preliminary Data: De-identified Stakeholder Responses

View the potential uses submission form hereĀ (pdf).

ISDS is seeking input from U.S. and international surveillance professionals to determine the primary public health purposes of public health syndromic surveillance (PHSS) and the data elements needed from inpatient and ambulatory clinical care settings.

Specifically, ISDS is requesting input on the following:

  1. What outcomes (i.e., health indicators or behaviors) can public health authorities routinely monitor with a syndromic surveillance approach and translate into public health action using:

A. Hospital inpatient EHR data?
B. Ambulatory clinical care EHR data?

  1. What data elements (i.e., name, description and preferred code set) are required for syndromic surveillance using:

A. Hospital inpatient EHR data?
B. Ambulatory clinical care EHR data?

  1. What evidence, subjective or objective, supports your required data elements for syndromic surveillance using:

A. Hospital inpatient EHR data? B. Ambulatory clinical care EHR data?

  1. What ambulatory clinical care settings collect health data that is of potential use to public health practice through syndromic surveillance?

De-identified responses will soon be posted on the Project Web Page, and will inform the development of recommendations by the ISDS Meaningful Use Workgroup.
