This roundtable will provide a forum for the syndromic surveillance Community of Practice (CoP) to learn about activities of the BioSense 2.0 User Group (BUG) workgroups that address priority issues in syndromic surveillance. The goals of the workgroups are to coordinate efforts nationwide, better inform development of BioSense 2.0 to the Governance Group and CDC, and achieve high-quality outcomes for the practice of syndromic surveillance. Representatives from each workgroup will describe their efforts to date so participants can discuss key challenges and best practices in the areas of data quality, data sharing, onboarding, and developing syndrome definitions.
