A Public Health Surveillance System for Early Warnings

Diego M. López


The paper describes a generic software architecture for Public Health Surveillance information Systems and the implementation of a reporting system for infectious diseases in rural areas, implementing such architecture. The architecture is a component-based, interoperable, flexible and open approach and the system is implemented using open source technologies. The software application has been piloted in the Department of Cauca in Colombia, in the framework of a telemedicine Project funded by the European Union Commission.
