The Global Emerging Infections Surveillance and Response System (GEIS), a division of the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center (AFHSC), is committed to enhancing electronic disease surveillance capacity around the world. To this end, they have entered into a robust collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory to create the Suite for Automated Global Electronic bioSurveillance (SAGES). SAGES is a collection of modular, flexible, open source software tools for electronic disease surveillance.
The July 2014 issue of the Johns Hopkins APL Technical Digest focuses on Global Health Surveillance, describing the development, implementation, and adaptation of the SAGES suite of tools; the process of the making the tools open source; and potential new analytic models for early detection of disease outbreak.
