Taha A Kass-Hout, David Buckeridge, John Brownstein, Zhiheng Xu, Paul McMurray, Charles K T Ishikawa, Julia Gunn, Barbara L Massoudi
2012 JAMIA Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association  
Due to its currently limited availability, we conclude that measured temperature is likely to add little value to self-reported fever in syndromic surveillance for febrile illness using ED records.  ...  This study found that patient chief complaint of self-reported fever was more readily available in ED records than measured temperature and that the majority of patients with an elevated temperature recorded  ...  Emergency department (ED) visit records are a frequently used source of information for syndromic surveillance. 1e3 Syndromic surveillance data, which are usually available before a diagnosis is made,  ...
