HPA launch systems to spot Olympic infections3rd May 2012
Two news systems have been launched by the Health Protection Agency to help spot new and emerging infections ahead of the Olympics in London.
They will give the HPA live reports on patients turning at out-of-hours and walk-n centres via a GP unscheduled care syndromic surveillance system which will complement a similar system for emergency departments, developed with the College of Emergency Medicine, and a web-based reporting tool for intensive care units. The system adds to the current ‘in-hours’ data available from the existing GP surveillance system.
