Abstract

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) electronically receives both urgent care center (UCC) data and hospital emergency department (ED) data from health care facilities in 43 of its 67 counties through its Electronic Surveillance System for the Early Notification of Community-based Epidemics (ESSENCE-FL). This project will investigate and describe the differences between the data received from these two sources and provide best practices for grouping and analyzing these data sources.
