Zika Pregnancy Surveillance: Transforming Data into Educational and Clinical Tools

Little was known about the maternal and fetal/infant effects of Zika infection before the 2015 outbreak in the Americas, which made it challenging for public health practitioners and clinicians to care for pregnant women and infants exposed to Zika. In 2016, CDC implemented a rapid surveillance system, the US Zika Pregnancy and Infant Registry, to collect information about the impact of Zika infection during pregnancy and inform the CDC response and clinical guidance.

Using clinician mental models to guide annotation of medically unexplained symptoms and syndromes found in VA clinical documents

Medically unexplained syndromes (MUS) are conditions that are diagnosed on the basis of symptom constellations and are characterized by a lack of well-defined pathogenic pathways. The three most common MUS are chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Different types of persistent symptoms, originating from different organ systems, characterize these syndromes. Patients often meet the criteria for more than one MUS.
