Consortium awarded CDC grant to coordinate national health system 'radar' to catch bioterror events

ting protocols common to all institutions and to facilitate the participation of other health plans and medical groups that possess real time encounter level information.

"The team will develop a system that many different types of medical systems and health departments can use," says Platt, HMS Professor of Ambulatory Care and Prevention. "Importantly, health plans will not share information about individual patients. Instead, they will report patterns of illness among groups of people.

The consortium's experience in developing such systems regionally will benefit the overall process, which includes finding uniform syndrome definitions, developing protocols for real time aggregation of ambulatory encounter data, forming secure Internet connections to report aggregated information to a data center, defining cluster identification steps, and determining the reporting structure to public health system responders. The American Association of Health Plans will work with its member organizations to share system requirements and eventually to form linkages with member databases.
