PHOs also register users via an administrative page in SYRIS. • Rapid (less than 30 seconds) data entry based on syndromic classifications for animals or humans suspected of having symptoms and signs indicative—based on clinical judgment—of serious infectious disease. • Immediate updating of geographic maps and temporal graphs so that all users can quickly visualize local-, regional-, and national-level reporting. Veterinarian, physician, school nurse, and EMS reports are color coded for easy interpretation (see illustration below).
