Title: Collaborative Syndromic Surveillance by the Mississippi Department of Health and the University of Mississippi Medical Center


1
Collaborative Syndromic Surveillance by the
Mississippi Department of Health and the
University of Mississippi Medical Center
  • K. Mills McNeill, MD, PhD
  • State Epidemiologist
  • Brian W. Amy, MD, MHA, MPH
  • State Health Officer
  • Mississippi Department of Health
  • 570 East Woodrow Wilson
  • Jackson, MS 39216

2
Why Syndromic Surveillance?
  • The threat of terrorism has changed the
    environment in which surveillance systems must
    operate.
  • Passive disease reporting is not enough.
  • Active disease detection must operate on an
    around-the-clock basis.
  • Rapid response to terrorism events is required.

3
Partnerships Now Required
  • Departments of health must partner with private
    and academic medical communities.
  • The Mississippi Department of Health (MDH) is
    partnering with the University of Mississippi
    Medical Center (UMMC) to deploy a new,
    hospital-based, electronic surveillance
    technology.
  • The system will detect both intentional events
    and naturally occurring emerging infectious
    diseases.

4
Our Approach
  • UMMC is the largest academic teaching center in
    Mississippi and receives a wide spectrum of
    patients from over the state.
  • Using CDC PHP CA monies, MDH purchased a
    commercially-available, state-of-the-art,
    decision-support system with a strong public
    health surveillance capability for installation
    at UMMC.
  • MDH is the first state health department to
    partner with an academic teaching center to
    install this system.

5
Modules of the System
  • Public Health Surveillance Assistant
  • Antibiotic Assistant
  • Adverse Drug Event Assistant
  • Pain Management Assistant
  • Infection Control Assistant

6
Infection Control Assistant Module
  • Hospital-wide surveillance and reporting
  • Continuous monitoring and analysis of patient
    data from multiple sources such as
  • Electronic patient record
  • Pharmacy
  • Laboratory
  • Radiology

7
Infection Control Assistant Module
  • Notifiable disease alerts include
  • Anthrax Psittacosis
  • Botulism Q fever
  • Brucellosis Salmonellosis
  • Cholera Shigellosis
  • Glanders Smallpox
  • Melioidosis Tularemia
  • Plague Viral encephalitis
  • VHF

8
Public Health Surveillance Assistant Module
  • Provides real-time, event-based monitoring of HL7
    data
  • Permits early recognition of unusual trends
    across patient populations
  • Uses indicators such as
  • Laboratory and radiographic findings
  • Hospital admissions
  • Early death after admission
  • Outpatient visit counts

9
Operational Timetable
  • Installation began in January 2005
  • System is scheduled to be fully operational in
    June 2005

10
Summary
  • Will detect intentional disease events
  • Will detect naturally occurring emerging
    infectious diseases
  • Future expansion to other Mississippi hospitals
    will be considered
