Epidemiologists Use NSSP-ESSENCE Dashboard to Supplement Case-Finding for COVID-19
To monitor potential coronavirus encounters and supplement traditional case-finding activities, epidemiologist Natasha Close, Washington State Department of Health, created a dashboard in the NSSP myESSENCE to visualize syndromic surveillance query results. The dashboard provides an excellent starting point for other epidemiologists who want to monitor for novel coronavirus. As of January 30, 2020, at least 90 other users had downloaded Close’s dashboard.
