Leveraging the NSSP R Studio Server to Automate QA Monitoring and Reporting

Description: 

In 2016, the CDC funded 12 states, under the Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance (ESOOS) program, to utilize SyS to increase timeliness of state data on drug overdose events. In order to operationalize the objectives of the grant, there was a need to assess and monitor the quality of Kentucky’s SyS data, with limited resources. We leveraged the NSSP’s R Studio Server to automate quality assurance (QA) monitoring and reporting to meet these objectives.

Objective:

The aim of this project was to develop a nimble system to both monitor and report on the quality of Kentucky emergency department syndromic surveillance (SyS) data at system-wide and facility levels.
