Syndromic Surveillance for Public Health and Bio-Defense
From the reviews: This book summarizes and describes the state-of-art research on the development and implementation of health surveillance systems that use early indicators of disease to identify outbreaks. The book was written for upper-level undergraduates and graduates in health sciences, computer science, and public administration, researchers in public health and IT, and government public health officials. This is the best book that presents a comprehensive coverage of syndromic surveillance systems. (Edward K. Mensah, Doodys Review Service, August, 2010)
