Measles Case Report (Canada) Mobile App
The Measles Case Report (Canada) app is a critical form for reporting cases of measles, rubella, or congenital rubella infection.
How does it work?
The app user will provide information about the case such as date reported to the health unit, and date investigation was initiated. Next, the health investigator can use the app to collect essential information about the suspected case of measles including the date of onset of rash or other present symptoms, the patient's vaccination history, and any complications from the infection requiring hospitalization. The investigator will note potential sources of exposure to the infection and any places of travel linked to a case of measles. The app includes an organized table for collecting laboratory information such as the detection of the measles or rubella virus or a rise in disease-specific antibodies. This app is an essential tool for part of a disease prevention and control program for the outbreak of measles and rubella.
