  • Using the Electronic Foodborne Outbreak Reporting System (eFORS) to Improve Foodborne Outbreak Surveillance, Investigations, and Program Evaluation

    Challenges exist in comparing foodborne disease outbreaks (FBDOs) across states due to important differences in reporting practices and investigations. Variables such as FBDO size, population size, number of tourists, and suspected etiology are important to consider when interpreting FBDO data. Analysis of eFORS data can be valuable in improving state FBDO investigations. From 2000 to 2005, ...
