Sharing syndromic surveillance data across jurisdictional boundaries enhances epidemiological capacities and expands situational awareness at multiple levels. This talk will detail a training model for developing data sharing practices at a HHS regional level, and early workshop results and outcomes. Workshop participants built knowledge and skills in syndromic surveillance practice through relationship building as a foundation to data sharing; sharing of actual SyS data and information, and discussion of the benefits and barriers to data solution in order to identify solutions and plan action.
