Basic Information

Overview

TESSy is a highly flexible metadata-driven system for collection, validation, cleaning, analysis and dissemination of data. Its key aims are data analysis and production of outputs for public health action. Apart from routine surveillance, TESSy has replaced the data collection systems in place for the Dedicated Surveillance Networks (DSNs) to provide experts with a one-stop-shop for EU surveillance data.

Goals
(1) Consequence management
(2) Early warning
(3) Situational awareness
