Supplementing Community public health survellance with data ...

Huge amounts of electronic data are constantly flowing among the participants of the American healthcare system. Standardized electronic healthcare reimbursement claims are a major part of that flow. From this ever-increasing flow of healthcare claims Verispan has developed the largest daily electronic stream of real-time, de-identified, patient-centric healthcare information in the world. From that constant stream of information, Verispan has also created the world’s largest data warehouse of longitudinal patient-care records. Over the past two years, Verispan has carefully examined this daily stream of healthcare information and its immense data warehouse to determine how this resource can meet the growing information needs of America’s public health sector. Verispan’ work in this area has shown that its dynamic, expanding stream of healthcare data is a strategic information resource that public health organizations can use to prepare for and respond to bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and other public health threats and emergencies.
