Title: Infectious Disease Informatics and ...

Publisher: Springer-Verlag Gmbh Nov 2010

Publication Date: 2010

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu


Neuware - Drawing on their collective and respective expertise, the Editors and contributing authors are developing a handbook project on two intersecting modern problems: infectious disease informatics and biosurveillance. Infectious Disease Informatics (IDI) is a field that has emerged from biomedical informatics. Biosurveillance is an IDI application focusing on monitoring for new outbreaks of infectious diseases. Both areas are closely related and they have significant practical implications in the globalized world we live in. INFECTIOUS DISEASE INFORMATICS AND BIOSURVEILLANCE: A Handbook of Research, Systems and Case Studies will be a systematic combined work which will accomplish the following: (1) provide structure to the multidisciplinary research in this fast moving, dynamic field, (2) define and further build the field, and (3) create an authoritative reference book for researchers, students and practitioners in the field. 488 pp. Englisch.

Synopsis: This book on Infectious Disease Informatics (IDI) and biosurveillance is intended to provide an integrated view of the current state of the art, identify technical and policy challenges and opportunities, and promote cross-disciplinary research that takes advantage of novel methodology and what we have learned from innovative applications. This book also fills a systemic gap in the literature by emphasizing informatics driven perspectives (e.g., information system design, data standards, computational aspects of biosurveillance algorithms, and system evaluation). Finally, this book attempts to reach policy makers and practitioners through the clear and effective communication of recent research findings in the context of case studies in IDI and biosurveillance, providing "hands-on" in-depth opportunities to practitioners to increase their understanding of value, applicability, and limitations of technical solutions. This book collects the state of the art research and modern perspectives of distinguished individuals and research groups on cutting-edge IDI technical and policy research and its application in biosurveillance. The contributed chapters are grouped into three units. Unit I provides an overview of recent biosurveillance research while highlighting the relevant legal and policy structures in the context of IDI and biosurveillance ongoing activities. It also identifies IDI data sources while addressing information collection, sharing, and dissemination issues as well as ethical considerations. Unit II contains survey chapters on the types of surveillance methods used to analyze IDI data in the context of public health and bioterrorism. Specific computational techniques covered include: text mining, time series analysis, multiple data streams methods, ensembles of surveillance methods, spatial analysis and visualization, social network analysis, and agent-based simulation. Unit III examines IT and decision support for public health event response and bio-defense. Practical lessons learned in developing public health and biosurveillance systems, technology adoption, and syndromic surveillance for large events are discussed. The goal of this book is to provide an understandable interdisciplinary IDI and biosurveillance reference either used as a standalone textbook or reference for students, researchers, and practitioners in public health, veterinary medicine, biostatistics, information systems, computer science, and public administration and policy.
