Syndromic Surveillance Using Electronic Health Record Clinical Data from Hospital and Ambulatory Settings: An Annotated Bibliography


This annotated bibliography summarizes close to 50 articles on syndromic surveillance using EHR data from hospital and ambulatory settings. The bibliography is a valuable resource for both practitioners and researchers as they continue to assess the feasibility and utility of using new types of clinical data for syndromic surveillance analyses. As Meaningful Use progresses it is increasingly important to understand both the potential and the limitations of using ambulatory and hospital data for these purposes. The bibliography also describes uses for data elements not commonly associated with syndromic surveillance, such as laboratory orders and results and medication usage
