Vetsyn: Veterinary Syndromic Surveillance Streamlined into one R Package


To describe an R package that was designed to provide ready implementation of veterinary syndromic surveillance systems, from classified data to the generation of alerts and an html interface.



The field of veterinary syndromic surveillance (VSS) is developing fast, with countries exploring a great variety of data sources. After implementing two VSS systems we have demonstrated that the steps from classified data to full system implementation can be streamlined, and published a guideline for implementation. All the steps described have been made available in an R package (https:// We aim to demonstrate the utility and potential of this streamlined approach.
