Abstract

Ongoing surveillance of disease outbreaks is important for public health officials, who to need consult with laboratory technicians in identifying specimen and coordinate care for affected populations. One way for public health officials to monitor possible outbreaks is through digital dashboards of summarized public health data. This study examines best practices for designing public health dashboards and proposes an optimized interface for an emergency response system for state public health laboratories. The practical nature of this research shows how general dashboard guidelines can be used to design a specialized dashboard for a public health emergency response information system. Through our analysis and design process, we identified two new guidelines for consideration.
