Syndromic Surveillance Use Case

A syndromic surveillance system provides real-time situational awareness of potential public health threats and emergencies. In Michigan, the Michigan Syndromic Surveillance System sends alerts to Michigan public health officials when unusual increases in symptom presentations are detected, allowing Michigan Department of Health and Human Services epidemiologists to analyze findings, investigate further, and contact local public health agencies and providers.

The Syndromic Surveillance use case scenario sets forth requirements for providers to send real-time, electronic syndromic surveillance data to a state syndromic surveillance system.
