Real-time Reporting Alerts Healthcare Professionals to Potential Disease Outbreaks

Delaware officials use trend analysis from hospitals, clinics and other healthcare points of contact as early warning for sophisticated surveillance system.

FACTOR developed key components of the Delaware Electronic Reporting & Syndromic Surveillance System (DERSS) to accelerate the identification and mitigate consequences for bioterrorism and disease outbreaks. With the system in place, public health officials in Delaware and at the national level are able to relay and search health information in real time to analyze trends in symptom and disease reporting. DERSS provides an early warning capability, allowing state professionals to analyze data streaming from hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare points of contact.

Integrated and Automated Outbreak Alerts

FACTOR provided GIS expertise and integrated automatic, map-based alerting services for telephone voice messaging, fax transmission, and wireless communication geocoded data. This custom mapping application is available through a web browser for fast collaboration among health professionals located throughout the state and the country.
