Abstract

Quick identification and isolation of patients with highly infectious diseases is extremely important in healthcare settings today. This study focused on the creation of a digital screening tool using a free and publicly available digital survey application to screen patients during a measles outbreak in New York City. The results indicate that digital tools are an effective alternative to paper tools due to their ease of use and remote compliance monitoring capabilities.
