As evidenced by the anthrax attacks in 2001, the SARS outbreak in 2003, and the H1N1 influenza pandemic in 2009, a pathogen does not recognize geographic or national boundaries, often leading to devastating consequences. Automated biosurveillance systems have emerged as key solutions for mitigating current and future health-related events. Focusing on this promising public health innovation, Biosurveillance: Methods and Case Studies discusses how these systems churn through vast amounts of health-related data to support epidemiologists and public health officials in the early identification, situation awareness, and response management of natural and man-made health-related events. The book follows a natural sequence from theory to application. The initial chapters build a foundation while subsequent chapters present more applied case studies from around the world, including China, the United States, Denmark, and the Asia-Pacific region. The contributors share candid, first-hand insights on lessons learned and unresolved issues that will help chart the future of biosurveillance. As this book illustrates, biosurveillance operates in a complex, multidimensional problem space that incorporates varied data. Capturing the progress of modern-day pioneers who are walking in John Snow's footsteps, this volume shows how contemporary information technology can be applied to the age-old challenge of combating the spread of disease and illness.

... solidly grounded in biosurveillance practice. ... chapters describe some of the exciting new sources of data, including SMS text messaging, remote sensing, and even rumour-based information sources. ... excellent background or motivational reading for advanced students entering the area. It provides up-to-date illustrations of where this fast-developing field is now. -David J. Hand, International Statistical Review, 2012 While having its roots in 21st-century infectious disease threats to health on a grand scale, biosurveillance has come to encompass a broader scope of the science and practice of managing population health-related data and information so that effective action can be taken to mitigate adverse health effects from urgent threats. This expansive scope is reflected in the diverse collection of reports and perspectives brought together in Biosurveillance: Methods and Case Studies. ... This text provides an important venue for the sharing of ideas and engagement of health scientists and practitioners that will be needed to assure progress. -From the Foreword by Daniel M. Sosin, MD, MPH, Acting Director, Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
