Then, SARS infected 5,237 people in mainland China and had a global death toll of almost 800. The new SARS-like form of coronavirus has killed 170 people in China. In Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak, more than 4,500 cases have been confirmed, according to the local health commission. As the deadly virus spreads and panic grows, many airlines are curtailing flights and several countries are evacuating their citizens from the central city of Wuhan, where the infection was first identified. On Wednesday morning, a flight carrying 195 American citizens from Wuhan landed at March Air Reserve Base in California. But around 1,000 Americans still remain in the city and many say they are feeling abandoned by their government. A second flight will soon be available to additional U.S. citizens seeking to leave the affected area. The “reimbursable” transport will leave on or around Feb. 3, according to an alert from the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. Though the vase majority of cases have occurred in Hubei province, the disease has also spread to other count...

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of an electronic, prepopulated notifiable disease report form on case reporting rates by ambulatory care clinics to public health authorities. METHODS: We conducted a 2-year (2012-2014) controlled before-and-after trial of a health information exchange (HIE) intervention in Indiana designed to prepopulate notifiable disease reporting forms to providers. We analyzed data collected from electronic prepopulated reports and "usual care" (paper, fax) reports submitted to a local health department for 7 conditions by using a difference-in-differences model.
