Enhancing Public Health Surveillance by Using Multiple Data Sources for Syndromic Surveillance: The Alberta Real Time Syndromic Surveillance Net

Capital Health is a regional health care organization, which provides services for over one million inhabitants in the Edmonton area of Alberta, Canada. Traditionally, disease surveillance under its jurisdiction has been paper-based and records maintained by different departments in several locations.
