Disease Surveillance: Technological Contributions to Global Health Security reminds us of the continued vulnerability of the world to contagious infections. The book presents examples of disease surveillance systems and evaluates promising advances as well as opportunities for new systems. It also explains how newer technologies can allow countries to comply with the International Health Regulations established by the World Health Organization.

The book covers various topics including international health regulations policy, challenges surrounding system deployment and implementation, data visualization techniques, the strengths and weaknesses of open source software, and legal considerations surrounding such software.

This book will show you how new reporting requirements, combined with new technologies, big data sources, and sophisticated analytic approaches now enable the public health community to identify potential outbreaks and initiate a response earlier than at any other time in history.
