    Evolve: InSTEDD's Global Early Warning and Response System Evolve: InSTEDD's Global Early Warning and Response System Presentation Transcript

    • Evolve: InSTEDD's Global Early Warning and Response System Taha Kass-Hout, MD, MS, Nicolás di Tada, and Eric Rasmussen, MD, MDM, FACP InSTEDD, Palo Alto, California, USA With funding from: We describe an early warning and response system designed to streamline the collaboration between domain experts and automated processes for early detection, prediction and effective response to health-related events (such as a disease outbreak or pandemic). Related items are grouped into a thread. Threads are later associated with events (hypothesized or confirmed). Tag (user- or auto-generated) cloud and semantic heat map Expert-generated Tags Publish and share information Create filter (by keyword, tag, topic, location, or time) and subscription (email, RSS, GeoChat) An event is monitored through a thread of items
      • Evolve synthesizes health-related event indication from a wide variety of information sources (event- or indicator-based) into a consolidated picture for analysis, maintenance of “community-wide coherence”, and collaboration. This helps detect anomalies, visualize clusters of potential events, predict the rate and spread of a disease outbreak and provide decision makers with the necessary tools to effectively investigate and respond to the event. Current classification includes:
      • 7 syndromes
      • 10 transmission modes
      • > 100 infectious diseases
      • > 180 micro-organisms
      • > 140 symptoms
      • > 50 chemicals
      • Presently, Evolve is being piloted in the Mekong Basin region of Southeast Asia.
