Abstract:

The project objectives are to merge population mobility functions with an outbreak detection and characterization capability. The main areas of focus include development of techniques and technology to represent travel modes to and from the study community, and working with local stakeholders to establish the needed information sources within the healthcare, transportation, and hospitality industries. The community survey element of the research includes negotiating access to necessary and minimal datasets and documenting issues and potential impediments that must be addressed to enable such access.The development and integration of mobility capabilities are fundamental functional requirements for a fully operational biosurveillance system, and by extension, for effective epidemiology in the computer age. This program is progressing in the effort to develop, demonstrate, and validate such functionality.
