Press Release: GCS Research Syndromic Surveillance Solution Highlighted by ESRI

The OTC Tracking System Overview of RODS

Healthy GIS - ESRI

Beginning in 2003, the School of Pharmacy at the University of Montana was awarded a grant from the Montana Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to develop and implement a pharmaceutical sales tracking and surveillance system. The statewide effort was initiated by state epidemiologists and disease surveillance program directors at MDHHS. Given recent concerns regarding bioterrorism and emergent and infectious diseases, such as SARS, and a host of additional public health issues, the goal was to develop a Web-based application that would integrate seamlessly with the University of Pittsburgh’s Realtime Outbreak and Disease Surveillance (RODS) Laboratory’s daily OTC pharmaceutical sales data for participating stores in Montana. In sum, the overarching task was to design, develop, and implement a RODS-based solution that would enable Montana’s health care providers to monitor, track, and detect potential health threats based on abnormal patterns in pharmaceutical sales.
