Article
Scientific discovery and global health policy are moving health literacy promotion and maternal-child health from the fringes of research and public health to the forefront of healthcare reform [Matern Child Health J. 18 (2014), 344-365]. In 2011 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Shanghai Declaration [Lancet 378 (2011), 566-567]. The...

Data that could be used for global disease surveillance are divided across diseases, countries, and organizations. The integration of this data requires substantial effort and malaria surveillance is an example of how data fragmentation can hinder evidence-based decision-making. In order to achieve allocative efficiency in malaria control programmi...
Article
The growing volume of data generated by systems around the world presents a tremendous opportunity for global health surveillance. These data, however, are fragmented in many ways, across diseases, countries, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and clinical institutions. This fragmentation poses a barrier to analyses that could bene t...

Driven by the need to bring malaria surveillance data from different sources together to support evidence-based decision making, we are conducting the " Scalable Data Integration for Disease Surveillance " (SDIDS) project. This project aims to foster the integration of existing surveillance data to support evidence-based decision-making in malaria...
Article
The Scalable Data Integration for Disease Surveillance project (SDIDS) is developing tools to integrate and present surveillance data from multiple sources, with an initial focus on malaria. Consideration of data quality is particularly important when integrating data from diverse clinical, population-based, and other sources. We used a hierarchica...
Article
Investigation of infectious disease cases requires support from protocols, distributed and cooperative work, and information systems. We used form and protocol reviews together with qualitative research to study public health work practices, data requirements, and information needs. We found that the forms and protocols did not fully align, and tha...

Background: A myriad of new tools and algorithms have been developed to help public health professionals analyze and visualize the complex data used in infectious disease control. To better understand approaches to meet these users' information needs, we conducted a systematic literature review focused on the landscape of infectious disease visual...

Introduction: The emergency telephone number 9-1-1 serves as a lifeline to the public during emergencies, and first responders rely on information gathered by 9-1-1 telecommunicators who speak with callers. Timely, accurate information from the telecommunicators is essential for providing appropriate care on scene. Language barriers can hamper the...
