Abstract

Syndromic surveillance systems perform real-time analysis of health data to enable early identification of potential public health threats, evaluating whether distributional parameters have been increased beyond a threshold. This paper presents the applied data analysis methods in five non-industrial surveillance systems. Four time series and spatial cluster analysis methods were found to be implemented: SMART, EWMA, CuSum and WSARE. Combined use both spatial and time series methods is found in the presented surveillance applications. Data analysis methods for syndromic surveillance are a constantly emerging field, while new statistical methods and algorithms are implemented into surveillance systems.
