The Road Ahead: The Expanding Role of Informatics in Disease Surveillance

Joseph S. Lombardo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The previous chapters in this book presented the components of automated disease surveillance systems as well as case studies of systems that have found practical use within the public health community. Automated surveillance systems present a considerable advance over manual approaches, but the field of automated disease surveillance will continue to advance as operational experience and technology improvements are incorporated within new or existing surveillance tools. This final chapter surveys a few areas where significant progress is currently being made and where advances will probably be available within the next few years.
