About this Use Case Scenerio

A syndromic surveillance system provides real-time situational awareness of potential public health threats and emergencies.

In Michigan, the Michigan Syndromic Surveillance System (MSSS) sends alerts to Michigan public health officials when unusual increases in symptom presentations are detected, allowing Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) epidemiologists to analyze findings, investigate further, and contact local public health agencies and providers.

The “Syndromic Surveillance” use case scenario is under the Health Information for State use case.
