To our knowledge, this has not been done before- activation of a comprehensive, integrated infectious disease forecasting station in the United States. The precidence was the Haiti Epidemic Advisory System (HEAS), which was the first operational comprehensive infectious disease forecasting center in the world. Here is one output of the station: the Delta County Memorial Hospital "Kids WellcastTM", expressed in language the local community is able to understand. This is the barest thumbnail of the full forecasting power of the station.
Enter 21st century medicine, where patients are now empowered with information to anticipate dozens of infectious diseases... forecasted like the weather. We use these forecasts in daily clinical care for our pediatric patients.
... Game on.
