Placing surveillance in a preparedness business process framework


Most public health workers could reach agreement on the general functions and operations regarding public health’s traditional operations, such as food safety inspections, outbreak investigations, or immunization clinics. However, there is much less shared understanding about public health’s emergency preparedness activities.


The Public Health Emergency Preparedness Business Process Interdependencies Framework was developed through a collaboration of state and local health departments, brought together to define public health’s business processes related to preparedness. This session will explain the framework, the role of surveillance within it, and the methodologies used to develop it.
