Date:10/25/2007

ase surveillance data; assist with sorting calls according to urgency and decision support for health concerns; assist with monitoring or contacting persons quarantined at home; help callers identify dispensed drugs, provide instructions on how to take them, and explain potential adverse reactions; and train health call center staff to identify callers who may benefit from referral to mental health care providers.

The appendices include a national planning scenario matrix that summarizes the 15 national planning scenarios developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; an instructional document describing components of the HELP program, which is the operational platform of Denver Health's public health hotline; interactive response guidance for monitoring home-quarantined persons, identifying drugs and other needs; and information that call centers can use as part of a home management strategy for people with influenza.
