Quick access to quality data is critical to an effective disease prevention and control application. The ability to accurately collect and analyze data in a timely fashion is a key part of making correct decisions regarding individual patient care and case management. To aid in this effort, RSM offers the Disease and Outbreak Management System for state and county government agencies to use in connection with electronic health records (EHRs), laboratory information management systems (LIMS) and other data sources.
A few of the solutions you can expect to find in RSM’s Disease and Outbreak Management System:
Structured process that allows for team assignments, case aggregation, risk analysis and response planning. Triggers from Syndromic Surveillance can initiate the identification and validation of the outbreak.
Case definitions from CDC pre-loaded for 73 diseases with auto assigned queue management for work distribution. Multiple status indicators provide insight into the case management process and the stage that each patient is at.
Diseases are managed by end users with the ability to define the symptoms and questions for epidemiological information gathering. Symptom definitions can be changed at any time to optimize the need to gather information as the disease is currently being managed.
