The aim of WP3 is to build a foundation for timely, comparable, and representative surveillance of severe infections leading to hospitalization in each member state.
The following objectives will be addressed:
Inventory and mapping of all relevant health data sources for integrated surveillance of severe infections leading to hospitalization, and to assess and overcome legal and technical barriers.
In member states relying on sentinel-based approach, the aim is to establish or improve the representativeness and timeliness of surveillance, using only electronic reporting.
In member states using nation-wide register-based public health surveillance, the aim is to integrate clinical information on hospitalized patients with microbiological data (typing and microbial resistance).
