Results from the Biosurveillance Technical Opportunity Prioritization Survey

The International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) community comprises a large pool of global expertise. Essential to the ISDS mission of advancing the science and practice of disease surveillance is understanding and setting priorities for research and best practices in public health monitoring. To this end, an ISDS workgroup developed an online survey to identify and prioritize the technical and policy issues of the ISDS community. Through analysis, the Survey will identify respondents' perceptions of opportunities in the area of analytical methodologies.

Using Social Media for Biosurveillance: Gap between Research and Action

There is a significant body of literature on the use of social media for monitoring ailments such as influenza-like illness1 and cholera,2 as well as public opinions on topics such as vaccination.3 In general, these studies have shown that social media correlates well with official data sources,1,2,3 with the trends identifiable before official data are available.2 However, less is known about the impact of integrating social media into public health practice, and resulting interventions.

Collaboration for Improved Disease Surveillance Literature Review

The ISDS Research Committee (RC) is an interdisciplinary group of researchers interested in various topics related to disease surveillance. The RC hosts a literature review process with a permanent repository of relevant journal articles and bimonthly calls that provide a forum for discussion and author engagement. The calls have led to workgroups and society-wide events, boosted interest in the ISDS Conference, and fostered networking among participants.

Evaluating the Relationship between Heat-Related ED Visits and Weather Variables

The ability to estimate and characterize the burden of disease on a population is important for all public health events, including extreme heat events. Preparing for such events is critical to minimize the associated morbidity and mortality [1, 2]. Since there are delays in obtaining hospital discharge or death records, monitoring of ED visits is the timeliest and an inexpensive method for surveillance of HRI [1]. Aside from air temperature, other environmental variables are used to issue heat advisories based on the heat index, including humidity and wind [3].
