Sydney LHD designs app for rapid response to flu in aged care facilities

Residential aged care facilities in the Sydney Local Health District (LHD) region are set to take part in a 12-month trial of an app designed to help provide a rapid response to flu outbreaks among residents.

The trial will involve staff recording data about suspected cases of influenza-like illness and flu among residents, which will then be used to inform an algorithm that will trigger alerts when the criteria for an outbreak is reached.
