Abstract

Public health authorities need a surveillance system
that is sensitive enough to detect a disease outbreak
early to enable a proper response. In order to meet
this challenge we have deployed a pilot componentbased
system in Albuquerque, NM as part of the
National Biodefense Initiative (BDI). B-SAFER
gathers routinely collected data from healthcare
institutions to monitor disease events in the
community. We describe initial results from the
deployment of the system for the past 6 months.
