Measles Investigation Report (Canada) Mobile App
Measles exposure can put some people at high risk of infection, particularly those who have not been vaccinated for MMR immunization.
How does it work?
Unregulated cases could result in a public health crisis. The Measles Investigation Report (Canada) app is a measles outbreak investigation form template. With this app, a health investigator will have an exhaustive questionnaire for gathering and documenting information about a potential case of measles. Disease control during a measles outbreak will be most effective if individual cases are managed and potential contacts to cases of measles are identified. With the app, the investigator will provide case identification and record clinical information such as the presence of maculopapular rash, date of onset of fever, other symptoms, and any health complications due to the infection. The app allows the investigator to capture Immunization history, vaccine dates and MMR doses, or proof of measles immunity. Finally, the health investigator will populate tables with all lab test results, exposure information from the incubation period, a list of potential contacts, and the final classification of the infection.
