Pre-Conference BioSense Workshop – Breakout Session, 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The ISDS Recommended Core Syndromic Surveillance Business Process Applied: Where can technology enhance your work?  

  • Charlie Ishikawa & Lucia Roja-Smith
Syndromic surveillance involves a complex array of discrete task, processes and decisions. Business processes and workflows are a method for graphically depicting and articulating any complex activity.  In this session participants will learn how this methodology can be used to understand syndromic surveillance and work in small groups to identify how technology may enhance their work.
