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.

With the support of the CDC Foundation, MITRE partnered with the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), and local, state and federal agencies to develop Sara Alert, a standards-based, open-source tool designed to support monitoring of individuals at risk of developing COVID-19.

“We did not have a way to do case contact tracing or support people in quarantine and isolation efficiently and at scale,” Jarris said. “Sara Alert allows us to automate and modernize identification and monitoring of case contacts in quarantine, and positive cases in isolation.”
