Two Unique Syndromic Surveillance Systems: State and Federal Collaboration to Identify Spike in “Visits of Interest”

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) uses Health Monitoring Systems’ EpiCenter to collect, manage, and analyze real-time emergency department (ED) data acquired from acute care hospitals and satellite EDs. NJDOH integrates these data into a comprehensive surveillance system, relying on prediagnostic data such as chief complaints from people seeking acute care to identify emerging trends. Public health and hospital practitioners can use EpiCenter to access syndromic surveillance (SyS) data via a desktop application in a secure browser.
