Abstract Now You See It: Real-time Syndromic data at glanceAuthors: Ana Soriano, Paul Loveridge, Amardeep Bains, Obaghe Edeghere, Alex Elliot IntroductionThe Real-time Syndromic Surveillance Team (ReSST) collects syndromic data from several healthcare sources across England, including GP consultations, emergency department attendances and NHS 111 calls, and has consolidated them in a data warehouse. In order to help ReSST analyse and interpret this complex SQL database for national surveillance of infectious diseases, environmental incidents and other public health incidents, a dashboard interface has now been developed to allow more efficient visualisations.
Method
sThe dashboard was developed in R, a widely used free programming language, using the existing R-based packages ‘flexdashboard' and ‘Shiny'. ‘Flexdashboard' allows the creation of interactive and attractive dashboards and ‘Shiny' allows you to build web apps with additional interactivity. Bespoke SQL queries extract the required surveillance data from the warehouse into R to produce various ‘real-time' visualisations such as charts, tables and maps. The dashboard charts display aggregated time series data with pre-defined age groups, sex and PHE Centre. Results and DiscussionThe beta version of the dashboard is currently being tested by ReSST, their feedback driving the next version of development. Future aims are to produce a more enhanced version of the dashboard that could include new data-streams from ECDS and Ambulance Trusts as well as displaying baseline information and statistical alarms. Eventually we hope to make the dashboard available to key internal stakeholders. External funding details
