Contagion Digital News Resource Unveils Global Outbreak Monitor for Zika, Ebola, Yellow Fever, and Other Infectious Diseases
Date:6/8/2016

Contagion™, a fully-integrated digital news resource for practitioners and specialists working in infectious diseases, has launched a global Outbreak Monitor that allows users to visualize occurrences of infectious diseases, such as Zika and Yellow Fever, on a local, regional, national and international level. The Monitor also tracks trends and details on the number of confirmed cases and deaths matched with recent Contagion website articles on disease topics.

Targeting health care professionals working and interested in infectious diseases, as well as the general consumer media, the Outbreak Monitor is regularly updated with information and details from trusted global reporting organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, National Institutes of Health, and the US Department of Health and Human Services.

“Resources, such as the Outbreak Monitor, can help both clinicians and the public keep in mind both that infectious diseases are ever-present and that continued surveillance is essential to see where to best aim our efforts to control them,” said Jason C. Gallagher, Pharm.D., FCCP, FIDSA, BCPS, president of the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists. “The Monitor can help remind the public that outbreaks are not just something they read about in the newspaper or see on TV - they can hit close to home.”

Jeff Prescott, PharmD, RPh, senior vice president of clinical affairs at Michael J. Hennessy Associates Inc., which produces Contagion, added, “Given the severity of some infectious diseases and the increase of global travel, it’s important that health care professionals stay up-to-date on the latest outbreak information, both near and afar, in order to anticipate infections and take the proper steps toward infection prevention. Our Outbreak Monitor covers Zika, Ebola, Yellow Fever, and a number of other emerging conditions that health care specialists and the media can now track from a single, reliable source.”

As the all-inclusive resource for infectious diseases information, Contagion features the latest news, scientific research studies, original articles and commentary directly from leading experts, as well as conference coverage and video interviews with experts in the field. What sets Contagion apart from other news resources is an extensive editorial board that drives an active forum for the world’s top infectious diseases experts to come together to share relevant content to impact future infectious diseases practices.
