Economic Modeling of Syndromic Surveillance Systems -- A Roundtable Discussion on Association of state and Territorial Health Official's (ASTHO) Investment Decision Model


One of ASTHO’s key goals is to help its jurisdictions meet member needs for technical assistance, including making informed decisions about their syndromic surveillance options. To help them make such decisions, ASTHO worked with Booz Allen to create a decision analysis model, which factors in both a Value of Information (VOI) model and a Return on Investment (ROI) model. The model provides a dashboard of its outputs, which is a simple, easy-to-understand comparative view of multiple syndromic surveillance investment scenarios.


Provide a demonstration of the recently developed prototype decision analysis model for syndromic surveillance investments. The roundtable will be used to discuss the model, obtain feedback on its usefulness, and brainstorm future uses and improvements.
