Evaluation of these types of systems has traditionally meant evaluation of data characteristics (e.g. accuracy and timeliness). This project identifies additional goals for surveillance systems: generation of data that are easily accessed by practitioners at multiple levels, and delivery of these data to appropriate decision-makers. For these goals, new evaluation measures were created. The evaluation was designed to produce recommendations easily translatable to practice, and thereby to support practical use of these systems. The evaluation design, findings, recommendations, and translation efforts will be described.
