Abstract

ASTHO worked with Booz Allen Hamilton to create a decision model for syndromic surveillance investments. The model‰Ûªs goal is to allow public health systems to compare and contrast different syndromic surveillance systems based on the value of information and return on investment. The roundtable will include a demonstration of the decision model, a review of how it can be used in practice, and a facilitated discussion covering its usefulness, applicability in the US and internationally, and potential future improvements. The roundtable will be moderated by two of the subject matter expert panel members who participated in its creation and the ASTHO project manager.
