The purpose of this panel is to facilitate the dissemination of surveillance-related use cases by public health practitioners with accompanying benchmark datasets to method developers. The panel will present their experiences with preparing patient-level emergency department data sets to accompany a use case submitted to the ISDS Technical Conventions Committee. We will review methods for cultivating a data set that is appropriate for sharing; experiences with and strategies for navigating the IRB human subjects review process; and legal and ethical issues related to sharing syndromic surveillance data with third parties.
