In light of the confirmed U.S. cases of Ebola in Dallas, there is a lot of attention on electronic health records (EHRs) and their intersection with public health. The EHR vendor community has responded with components within their respective tools to address Ebola and assist within a healthcare environment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) will convene key stakeholders to encourage collaboration in the development of Ebola electronic screening tools. The CDC Ebola team will review the CDC clinical algorithm and checklist for evaluation of individuals with suspected Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), with the intent to explore the inclusion of travel history and assessment of pertinent clinical signs and symptoms into a electronic format that will alert clinicians to consider the diagnosis of EVD. Additionally, the ONC will lead a discussion on how existing products may be configured to support screening protocols. The presentations will be followed by a Question & Answer session for EHR vendors and public health practitioners.
