State Outbreak Reporting System ( सोर्स )
Directorate of Medical & Health, Uttar Pradesh

            Uttar Pradesh is a vast state in terms of population and geographical dimension. Due to interplay among host, agent & environment, outbreaks do occur all across the state sporadically. To detect the outbreak impendency and prompt & effective response, Integrated Disease Surveillance Project (IDSP) was launched in 2008. This was done through the surveillance by tracking presumptive cases in OPD, laboratory confirmed cases in laboratory and syndromic cases at the community level. Moreover, outbreak cases were also reported through Early Warning Signal (EWS) format. However, majority of outbreak reporting is still done manually and there is no central repository for the information on outbreak. Therefore, it was felt by the state to develop its own customized software application that can facilitate the timely collection, compilation & analysis of data and thereby, generate information and knowledge to mitigate outbreak severity. Director General, Medical & Health Services, UP requested Project Director, Uttar Pradesh Health System Strengthening Project (UPHSSP) to provide the technical assistance. The design of proposed software was conceived through discussion with various stake holders and current layout was finalized for the development of the software.
