Description:To determine efficacy of automatic outbreak detection algorithms (AODAs), we analyzed 3,582 AODA signals and 4,427 reports of outbreaks caused by Campylobacter spp. or norovirus during 2005-2006 in Germany. Local health departments reported local outbreaks with higher sensitivity and positive predictive value than did AODAs.
