Automated surveillance methods for notifiable diseases: theory, practice, and evaluation:  Automated surveillance methods for notifiable diseases: theory, practice, and evaluation Matthew Samore, MD Utah Center of Excellence in Public Health Informatics Epicenter for Prevention of Healthcare Associated Infection Salt Lake VA Health Care System University of Utah Objectives:  Objectives Define situation awareness and situation comprehension in the context of public health surveillance Application of an inference engine to electronic health records for case identification Evaluation of impact on public health surveillance work processes Outline:  Outline Surveillance theory Surveillance practice Surveillance evaluation Surveillance Theory:  Surveillance Theory Paradigms and Models :  Paradigms and Models The Panopticon Archetype: “Total information awareness” Signal detection theory Trade-off between hit rate and false alarm rate Situation awareness Detection, diagnosis, prediction What is situation awareness?:  What is situation awareness? Comprehension of a dynamic environment Understanding comprehension:  Understanding comprehension A “phenomenon that emerges from an orchestra of cognitive processes” Perception Surface level “Eventbase” Semantic information extracted from perceptual input Situation model Integration of semantic information with prior knowledge Durso, et. al: Handbook of Applied Cognition A tragic error:  A tragic error “On a beautiful night in October 1978, in the Chesapeake Bay, two vessels sighted one another visually and on radar. On one of them, the Cost Guard cutter training vessel Cuyahoga, the captain saw the other ship up ahead as a small object on the radar, and visually he saw two lights, indicating that it was proceeding in the same direction as his own ship. He thought it possibly was a fishing vessel. Since the two ships drew together so rapidly, the captain decided that it must be a very slow fishing boat that he was about to overtake. Slide9:  At the last moment the captain of the Cuyahoga realized that in overtaking the supposed fishing boat, which he assumed was on a near-parallel course, he would cut off that boat’s ability to turn as both of them approached the Potomac River. So he ordered a turn to the port. This brought him directly in the path of the oncoming freighter, which hit the cutter. Eleven coastguardsmen perished. The captain’s mental model:  The captain’s mental model Cell phone use during driving:  Cell phone use during driving How it may affect comprehension of the dynamic environment of the road Fail to check rearview mirror (attention) At 4 way stop, may fail integrate spatial and temporal information to determine who has right of way and should enter intersection first May recognize that driver in oncoming vehicle is distracted but fail to infer the appropriate situation model, that the car will not stop Situation awareness and public health :  Situation awareness and public health Relevance The health of a population is indeed dynamic Time horizons cover a wide range The concept captures the data hungry nature of epidemiology and public health Current health status Current health care capacity Early detection Limitations: :  Limitations: Vaguely expressed as goal of surveillance Decisions or actions not specified More importantly: Description of the situation model is lacking More effective use of the concept of situation awareness:  More effective use of the concept of situation awareness Probe deeper Interpretation of current state Projected states Measurement Links theory to practice Describing the current situation:  Describing the current situation As given to computer scientist Yarden Livnat by Mary Hill, epidemiologist at Salt Lake Valley HD “There is significant flu in the valley” “Fever and coughs are rising” “12 people hospitalized throughout the valley” “20% are children” “Most cases are rapid A” “School absenteeism is high in middle/high schools” “Btw, the hunting season started yesterday” Mental maps of epidemiologists:  Mental maps of epidemiologists GI outbreak scenario Cluster of individuals with acute diarrhea who had eaten at a fast food restaurant Preliminary analysis: Approach to problem space varies substantially across public health personnel Surveillance Practice:  Surveillance Practice Why syndromic surveillance (e.g., RODS) was perceived to be useful during Winter Olympic games (and other special events):  Why syndromic surveillance (e.g., RODS) was perceived to be useful during Winter Olympic games (and other special events) At not very useful at other times Thesis:  Thesis Utility of syndromic surveillance depends on situation model Under normal conditions, its value is highly limited Current level of threat Suspicion of departure from normality Public Health Practice:  Public Health Practice Based Research Core Principles:  Core Principles Partnerships and synergies Active participation of health departments at local and state levels Public health leadership or co-leadership of projects Vision of public health research laboratory Interdisciplinary collaboration at local and national levels Utah Department of Health Office of Public Health Informatics:  Utah Department of Health Office of Public Health Informatics Directed by Wu Xu, PhD Goals Coordinate statewide eHealth initiatives

May be better or worse than conventional criteria Conventional case criteria constitute a reference standard but are never a true gold standard Wit h respect to disease occurrence in a target population Sensitivity is virtually always less than 100% because of incomplete clinical evaluation and testing Lack of true gold standard with respect to Surveillance Evaluation:  Surveillance Evaluation Conceptual framework:  Conceptual framework Six core activities Detection Registration Confirmation Reporting Analyses Feedback.
