Update on Analysis of Shared Syndromic Data for Severe Respiratory Injury Surveillance

During this webinar, Michael Coletta and Aaron Kite-Powell (CDC’s National Syndromic Surveillance Program) presented analyses of syndromic data for the outbreak of lung injury associated with the use of e-cigarette, or vaping, products.

Data Sharing Through Dashboards: The Who, What, Where, When, and Why

Presented April 26, 2019.

Description: Join us for this lightning talk webinar experience where you will see multiple examples of data dashboards and learn more about who they were created for, how they were developed, where and when the data is being shared, and what impact the dashboard has had on improving public health practice. We will hear from 5 presenters from around the public health community as they discuss their work on opioid, flu, and general disease surveillance dashboards.

Presenters addressed the following questions:

An Analysis of Risk Communication Surrounding Increases in a Polio-like Condition in the U.S.

In 2014, CDC started receiving an increase in reports of children in the United States with unexplained limb weakness or paralysis (120 total cases). These children were later confirmed by neurology experts to have a rare condition called acute flaccid myelitis (AFM). The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists created a standardized case definition for AFM in 2015, allowing CDC to establish standardized surveillance to monitor AFM, determine possible causes and risk factors, and attempt to estimate the baseline incidence.

Dashboard Prototype for Improved HIV Monitoring and Reporting for Indiana

In 2015, ISDH responded to an HIV outbreak among persons using injection drugs in Scott County [1]. Information to manage the public health response to this event and aftermath included data from multiple sources (e.g., HIV testing, surveillance, contact tracing, medical care, and HIV prevention activities). During the outbreak, access to timely and accurate data for program monitoring and reporting was difficult for health department staff. Each dataset was managed separately and tailored to the relevant HIV program area’s needs.

Twitter: a complementary tool to monitor seasonal influenza epidemic in France?

Social media as Twitter are used today by people to disseminate health information but also to share or exchange on their health. Based on this observation, recent studies showed that Twitter data can be used to monitor trends of infectious diseases such as influenza. These studies were mainly carried out in United States where Twitter is very popular1-4. In our knowledge, no research has been implemented in France to know whether Twitter data can be a complementary data source to monitor seasonal influenza epidemic.

Harnessing Data Science Through Healthcare IT Interoperability

The ability to harness data science for use in improving population health and public health surveillance begins with the application of interoperability standards to electronic messaging for data exchange between HIT used by public health authorities (PHAs) and the providers who submit patient data to them. When electronic transmissions between these entities are not based on interoperability standards, the patient data that are exchanged may be incomplete, inaccurate, invalid, and/or untimely.

Practical Story: Real People, Real Urine, Unreal UTI

Asymptomatic Bacteriuria (ASB) is defined as the presence of bacteria in the urine of a patient without signs or symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI). It is one of the most common reasons for inappropriate antibiotic use in hospitalized patients. Without efforts to check inappropriate use, our communities could see increased numbers of highly resistant bacterial pathogens contributing to the public health threat of antimicrobial resistance. Treatment itself may be associated with subsequent antimicrobial resistance, adverse drug effects, and cost.

Using the CA Opioid Overdose Surveillance Dashboard to track opioid overdose deaths

California continues to face a serious public health crisis with the opioid epidemic having substantial health and economic impacts. The epidemic is dynamic and rapidly changing, involving both prescription opioids influenced by prescribing and dispensing patterns as well as illicit opioids influenced by the availability of heroin and recently, the increased availability of fentanyl. The complexity of the issue necessitates data-informed actions through multi-sector, strategic collaboration at both the state and local levels to address the problem comprehensively.

Keyword Surveillance and the Development of Evolving Reporting in Austin, Texas

Austin Public Health creates a variety of syndromic surveillance reports for events throughout the Austin, Texas metropolitan area. These events range from responses to major disasters such as the 2017 Hurricane Harvey sheltering to ongoing special event monitoring such as University of Texas football games and the Austin City Limits music festival.
