address these challenges by adopting a hybrid disease surveillance approach which fosters cross-disciplinary social network and open collaborative decision making approach in order to facilitate early identification of potential health threats their verification, assessment and investigation in order to recommend measures (public health and others) to control them.Indicator-based surveillancecomputation of indicators upon which unusual disease patterns to investigate are detected (number of cases, rates, proportion of strains…)Event-based surveillancethe detection of public health events based on the capture of ad-hoc unstructured reports issued by formal or informal sources.
WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE
• Diverse groups self-organize seamlessly into a coherent whole. • The flow of information is: – free, reliable, secure, – up, down, sideways, – timely, accurate, complete, relevant, and credible. • The response is agile, coordinated, efficient, and effective.
FEW REASONS WHY IT SELDOM
A DOES… Harsh field conditions Slow, unreliable networks Hot, tired, overloaded responders Low signal-to-noise ratio Data trapped in silos Disincentives for cooperation Lack of good tools for emergent collective action Ignoring the local community

SHARING DATA IS DISRUPTIVE Les
