Michigan Syndromic Surveillance System

New Page 1

The Syndromic Surveillance project is designed and implemented to facilitate public health rapid detecting and response to unusual outbreaks of illness that may be the result of bioterrorism, outbreaks of infectious disease or other public health threats and emergencies. Real time detection of a notable increase in patients presenting for care with similar symptoms could allow early and appropriate public health intervention and minimize negative impact.  The system provides tools that include automatic data collection, automatic aberration detection algorithms and tools that support temporal and spatial data analysis and visualization.
