ABSTRACT

Evaluation of Our Nation's Public Health and Healthcare Situational Awareness: A Brief Report from the National Biodefense Science Board   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Key Recommendation, "The NBSB [National Biodefense Science Board] strongly emphasizes the need to designate an oversight authority to assure compatibility, consistency, continuity, coordination, and integration of all the disparate systems and data requirements. Therefore, the NBSB recommends that the Secretary of HHS [Health and Human Services] designate a central situational awareness authority for coordinating all public health and healthcare situational awareness data that have already been collected, processed, and analyzed from respective agencies on a national level; the authority will also have the responsibility to recommend corrective actions to improve situational awareness, including, the standardization of common operating procedures."
