Dr. Paul Jarris Discusses Sara Alert

Amid public health emergencies and pandemics, like COVID-19, it’s important for public health agencies to be able to respond swiftly. Dr. Paul Jarris, chief medical advisor of MITRE’s health transformation center, gives an in-depth presentation on Sara Alert™ – an open source tool to monitor individuals at risk for COVID-19. Created in collaboration with national public health organizations, Sara Alert is designed to contain the spread of disease through effective monitoring and rapid response.

Sara Alert

The Benefit of Increasing Monitoring Capacity

 

The tool allows remote monitoring of individuals at risk, either because of travel or through exposure to a confirmed case in the U.S., providing the following benefits:

RAPID IDENTIFICATION of a person requiring medical assistance, allowing a local health department to arrange a medical visit with minimal additional exposure.
IMPROVED MONITORING of individuals.
EFFICIENT EXCHANGE of information with opportunities to provide updates and receive data in real time.
REDUCED BURDEN because public health professionals will be able to more quickly triage individuals based on disease risk rather than spend time with every person of concern.
