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.

Integrating data from disparate data systems for improved HIV reporting: Lessons learned

In 2015, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) responded to a large HIV outbreak among persons who inject drugs (PWID) in Scott County. Information to manage the public health response to this event and its aftermath included data from multiple sources such as surveillance, HIV testing, contact tracing, medical care, and HIV prevention activities. Each dataset was managed separately and had been tailored to the relevant HIV program area’s needs, which is a typical practice for health departments.

The Longitudinal Record: Linking Hepatitis A Outbreak Cases and Syndromic HL7 Data

With increasing availability of syndromic meaningful use data, new approaches to disease surveillance utilizing linkages to other data systems are possible. Expanded communicable disease information may be valuable during outbreaks or other public health emergencies. San Diego County is experiencing a significant and protracted hepatitis A outbreak. The disease has been transmitted person-to-person through close contact or through a fecally-contaminated environment, and has been primarily affecting homeless people and injection and non-injection illicit drug users.

Science and Technology Enabling Integrative Global Biosurveillance

Life science and biotechnology advances have provided transforming capabilities that could be leveraged for integrative global biosurveillance. Global infectious disease surveillance holds great promise as a tool to mitigate the endemic and pandemic infectious disease impacts, and remains an area of broad international interest. All nations have significant needs for addressing infectious diseases that impact human health and agriculture, and concerns for bioenergy research and environmental protection.

The Implementation of an Outbreak Management Solution in New York State

Most outbreaks are small and localized in nature, although it is larger outbreaks that result in the most public attention. So a solution to manage an outbreak has to be able to accommodate a response to small outbreaks in a single jurisdiction scalable up to outbreaks that involve thousands of cases across multiple jurisdictions and to handle different types of situations with different questions and response required.

Integrated approach of non-specific surveillance in Reunion Island

In Reunion Island, the non-specific surveillance was developed since 2006 and was based on the activity of only one hospital emergency department and on mortality. To respond to the threat of influenza A(H1N1) pandemic emergence, this surveillance system was significantly enhanced. All hospital emergency departments of the island have been included as well as the emergency medical service regulation center. In 2010, a new surveillance was implemented from National Health Insurance data.

An Enterprise Information Integration (EII) Approach for a Syndromic Surveillance System

A comprehensive definition of a syndrome is composed of direct (911 calls, emergency departments, primary care providers, sensor, veterinary, agricultural and animal data) and indirect evidence (data from schools, drug stores, weather etc.). Syndromic surveillance will benefit from quickly integrating such data.
