Investigating Syndromic Peaks Using Remotely Available Electronic Medical Records

Description: 

One limitation of syndromic surveillance systems based on emergency department (ED) data is the time and expense to investigate peak signals, especially when that involves phone calls or visits to the hospital. Many EDs use electronic medical records (EMRs) which are available remotely in real time. This may facilitate the investigation of peak signals.
