Using NC DETECT Summary Reports to Share Syndromic Information


The North Carolina Disease Event Tracking and Epidemiologic Collection Tool (NC DETECT) provides early event detection and public health situational awareness to hospital-based and public health users statewide. Authorized users are currently able to view data from emergency departments (n=110), the statewide poison control center, the statewide EMS data system, a regional wildlife center and pilot data from a college veterinary laboratory as well as select urgent care centers. While NC DETECT has over 200 registered users, there are public health officials, hospital clinicians and administrators who do not access the system on a regular basis, but still like to be kept abreast of syndromic trends in their jurisdictions. In order to accommodate this interest and reduce redundant data entry among active users, we developed a summary report that can be easily exported and distributed outside of NC DETECT.



This paper describes a user driven weekly syndromic report designed and developed to improve the efficiency of sharing syndromic information statewide.
