Public Health Ontario (PHO) is launching the newest addition to its suite of online, interactive tools: Reportable Disease Trends in Ontario.

In addition to presenting detailed summaries for select diseases, the tool further summarizes relevant epidemiological information such as: hospitalizations, deaths, and immunization history. This session will provide an overview of the new interactive tool including a description of the development process, an overview of its functionality, and scenario-based demonstrations.
