Abstract:

The purpose of this annual surveillance report is to summarize incidence rates of medical conditions and trends over time from data collected by the Medical Data Surveillance System MDSS. MDSS is a Web-based medical surveillance system that provides near-real-time medical threat assessment and ongoing surveillance using routinely collected information from patient medical encounters. Data included in this report are from two large local catchment areas Camp Pendleton and San Diego and their associated individual medical treatment facilities MTFs. Because of the timing of this first annual report, presentation of a full year of data from MDSS was not possible. Rather, annual data are presented for a 6-month period only, from 1 March 2003 to 31 August 2003.
