Methods for locating spatial clusters of diseases are typically variations of the circular scan statistic method. They restrict the number of potential clusters by considering all circular, rectangular, or elliptical regions, and then apply a likelihood ratio test to evaluate the statistical... Read more

Content type: Abstract

This paper describes a modular approach to surveillance system design, ensuring flexibility, scalability and fault tolerance.

Content type: Abstract

To evaluate the robustness of a spatial anonymization algorithm for syndromic surveillance data against a triangulation vulnerability attack. `BACKGROUND We have published an anonymization algorithm that takes precise point locations for patients and moves them a randomized distance according to...

Content type: Abstract

To measure the impact, within administrative geographic areas, of household income on rates of visits due influenza and RSV among children using real-time syndromic surveillance.

Content type: Abstract

This paper describes the syndromic networks paradigm [1] and its application to various surveillance settings.

Content type: Abstract

Internet-based resources such as discussion sites and online news sources have become invaluable sources for a new wave of surveillance systems. The WHO relies on these informal sources for about 65% of their outbreak investigations.(1) Despite widespread use of unstructured information there... Read more

Content type: Abstract

The performance of even the most advanced syndromic surveillance systems can be undermined if the monitored data is delayed before it arrives into the system.  In such cases, an outbreak may be detected only after it is too late for appropriate public health response. Surveillance systems can... Read more

Content type: Abstract

With the widespread deployment of near real time population health monitoring, there is increasing focus on spatial cluster detection for identifying disease outbreaks. These spatial epidemiologic methods rely on knowledge of patient location to detect unusual clusters. In hospital... Read more
