    • 8. InSTEDD Mesh4X Share Information with Anyone
    • 9. The data I need to make decisions is trapped in silos Different organizations. Different networks. Different applications. Different formats. Different devices.
      • How can I share what I know with others?
      • How can I use the data I have access to wherever I am?
      • How can I get everyone on the same page quickly?
      • How do I keep everyone in sync as the situation changes?
      ? ? ?
    • 10. Mesh4X 1.0 Adaptive Data Integration “Edge-ware”
      • Fuse diverse applications, data sources, and devices into a seamless “mesh” of free-flowing information
      • Share your data selectively and securely with different organizations using different applications
      • Synchronize data automatically between databases, spreadsheets, websites, applications, phones, PDAs, and maps
      • Synchronize over the Internet, or by SMS text messages
      • Open source software based on open data standards
      A synchronization framework for seamless information sharing A synchronization system for seamless cross-boundary information sharing Mesh4x Framework

      • Mesh4X – Epi Info™:
      • Each epidemiologist collects patient case data, offline, for a given county.
      • All three then plug mobile phones into their laptops and click “Synchronize.”
      • Now they have each others’ latest data and can see it all on a map!
      Mesh4X 1.0 CDC creates a health surveillance “data mesh”
    • 12. Mesh4X 1.0
      • Benefits:
      • Database, device, application and platform independent
      • Make changes anywhere. See the changes everywhere.
      • Allows secure communications and encrypted data storage to protect privacy
      • Socio-politically neutral architecture where no one party controls the only copy of the data
      • Multiple, distributed copies of data mean no single point of failure
      • Designed to keep working when Internet access is slow, unreliable, or entirely unavailable
