WHAT IS “MEDICAL SENTINEL” CASE SURVEILLANCE IN PUBLIC HEALTH?

SENTINEL SURVEILLANCE is a medical case observation system in which a designated group of reporting sources, hospitals and agencies agrees to report all cases of one or more notify-able conditions; such as the Corona Virus.

I first became interested in this concept during the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the early 1980s. In fact, it prompted me to later become a Certified Physician in Healthcare Quality [CPHQ].

Now recently, Deborah Leah Birx MD coordinator for the White House Corona Virus Task Force mentioned the term on the daily presidential briefings.
