Description:This webinar will present a decision support tool for jurisdictions to evaluate the Value of Information (VOI) and Return on Investment (ROI) for Syndromic Surveillance system implementation. One of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials’ (ASTHO) key goals is to help its jurisdictions meet member needs for technical assistance, which includes making informed decisions about their syndromic surveillance options.
