Core features are free forever
The Maryland Measles (Rubeola) Surveillance Case Investigation app is an effective tool for gathering information about potential cases of measles for infectious disease control.
How does it work?
With this worksheet, a health investigator can gather patient demographics and vital case information about the suspect case of measles. The investigator will note the associated case of the disease and the status of the infection. The investigator can use the app to track clinical data including symptoms of the infection such as a maculopapular rash, high fever, or cough and any complications from the disease. The investigator should record lab results that confirm the virus, including IgM results or the presence of the IGG antibody. If the patient received MMR immunization, the investigator can record the vaccination date and the dose of the measles vaccine. If the patient was not vaccinated, the investigator can explain the reason. Finally, the investigator will use the worksheet to document all potential contacts who may have had exposure to this case of measles. With this app, local health officials can minimize the transmission of measles and prevent an outbreak of measles in the wider community.
