FluTracking online health surveillance system used to detect the potential spread of influenza

30 March 2020

The FluTracking surveillance system is a system that harnesses the power of the internet and community spirit to monitor influenza. From this week, a few quick questions relating to COVID-19 have also been added.

Encouraging your patients (whether vaccinated or not) to join this weekly survey will help to track influenza in the local community and nation-wide. The simple online survey takes less than 10 seconds each week. Those registered for the survey will be sent an email once a week with a few very quick yes/no questions.

The main aims of FluTracking are to develop a system that can provide:

  1. Community level influenza-like illness surveillance
  2. Consistent surveillance of influenza activity across all jurisdictions and over time; and
  3. Year-to-year comparison of the timing, attack rates, and seriousness of influenza in the community.
