Bio-surveillance through Community Interoperability

March 8, 2005, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST

Bill Dwyer, Senior Vice President and Jeff James, Engineering Project Manager, Cerner Corporation, Kansas City, MO, present the results achieved using HealthSentry, an exciting regional pilot in disease detection and management. They will describe the rapid deployment and valuable results delivered to the public health and provider communities. A peer reviewed journal article shows the improved accuracy (80% increase in completed demographic information) and timeliness of reporting (turnaround dropped from 2.5 to .5 days) for laboratory results through the system. The talk will also describe the evolution of the system from its tightly focused initial version into a more robust reporting solution. This information will be of particular interest to laboratory directors, infectious disease specialists, infection control practitioners and ED directors.
