A standards-based solution for public health reporting and surveillance.


Our team built a standards-based prototype system for multi-national public health reporting and surveillance. It uses interoperability specifications from Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) and open source technologies from Eclipse OHF. Public health organizations leveraging interoperability standards implemented within the clinical domain will have the most standardized data ever achieved; allowing them to focus attention on creating new tools to better visualize population health, detect outbreaks, determine policy effectiveness, and perform forecast modeling.
