Abstract

Beginning in 2004, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) partnered with the Regenstrief Institute on a 4-year project to implement a statewide biosurveillance system incorporating more than 110 hospitals. This paper describes our evolving experience with the system including ongoing implementation challenges, how the system has helped to uncover events of public health significance, and future directions. The system currently receives ED visit data from 50 hospitals totaling nearly 5,000 visits per day, and is projected to have 65 hospitals connected by August 2006.
