Infectious disease modeling has played a prominent role in recent outbreaks, yet integrating these analyses into public health decision-making has been challenging. We recommend establishing ‘outbreak science’ as an inter-disciplinary field to improve applied epidemic modeling.

Interannual climate variability patterns associated with the El Nino-Southern Oscillation phenomenon result in climate and environmental anomaly conditions in specific regions worldwide that directly favor outbreaks and/or amplification of variety of diseases of public health concern including chikungunya, hantavirus, Rift Valley fever, cholera, plague, and Zika. We analyzed patterns of some disease outbreaks during the strong 2015–2016 El Nino event in relation to climate anomalies derived from...

Introduction Epidemic forecasting and prediction tools have the potential to provide actionable information in the midst of emerging epidemics. While numerous predictive studies were published during the 2016–2017 Zika Virus (ZIKV) pandemic, it remains unknown how timely, reproducible, and actionable the information produced by these studies was. Methods To improve the functional use of mathematical modeling in support of future infectious disease outbreaks, we conducted a systematic review of a...

Objective The transition from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM requires evaluation of syndrome mappings to obtain a baseline for syndromic surveillance purposes. Two syndrome mappings are evaluated in this report. Introduction The Department of Defense conducts syndromic surveillance of health encounter visits of Military Health System (MHS) beneficiaries. Providers within the MHS assign up to 10 diagnosis codes to each health encounter visit. The diagnosis codes are grouped into syndrome and sub-syndrome ...

Objective The Department of Defense data is available to National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) users to conduct syndromic surveillance. This report summarizes the demographic characteristics of DoD health encounter visits. Introduction The DoD provides daily outpatient and emergency room data feeds to the BioSense Platform within NSSP, maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This data includes demographic characteristics and diagnosis codes for health encounter vis...

The outbreak of Ebola that started in West Africa in late 2013 has caused at least 28,000 illnesses and 11,000 deaths. As the outbreak progressed, global and local public health authorities scrambled to contain the spread of the disease by isolating those who were ill, putting in place infection control processes in health care settings, and encouraging the public to take steps to prevent the spread of the illness in the community. It took a massive investment of resources and personnel from man...

To the Editor: Infections with typhus group rickettsiae (TGR), spotted fever group rickettsiae (SFGR), and scrub typhus group orientiae (STGO) have been reported among persons in South Korea in increasing numbers over the past decade (1,2). During 2001–2011 in South Korea, 51,825 orientiae group infections were reported (mean incidence 9.95 cases/100,000 residents/year) (2). TGR (Rickettsia typhi), SFGR (R. akari, R. japonica, R. monacensis, and R. felis), and STGO (Orientia tsutsugamusi) have b...
