Preferences & Perceptions of Biosurveillance System Users

Early detection is a function of many biosurveillance systems that strives to decrease the time between the onset of an event (e.g. infectious disease epidemic) and discovery. Situational awareness is another function that provides for timely information that public health can use to assess status of events (e.g. outbreak progression or general community health). With 1 being “No Importance” and 5 being “Most Important”, please rate each of these functions as they relate to your desires. (65 respondents)
