Infect., - 2012 - Developing a new syndromic surveillance system for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Strategic early warning system. The aim of a Strategic Early Warning System (SEWS) is to assist organizations in dealing with discontinuities or strategic surprises.
By detecting weak signals (Igor Ansoff, 1975), which can be perceived as important discontinuities in an organizational environment, SEWS allows organizations to react strategically ahead of time. Underlying theory The underlying assumption of SEWS is that discontinuities do not emerge without warning. These warning signs are described as "weak signals" (Ansoff, 1975), a concept aimed at early detection of those signals which could lead to strategic surprises -- events which have the potential to jeopardise an organization’s strategy.
Furthermore, the concept of a SEWS is intended to constitute an important part of a strategic management system, operating real-time in an organization, and assisting in identifying the new, which emerge as those "weak signals". Detecting weak signals is achieved by scanning the organizational environment.

International Journal of Health Geographics 2010, 9:1 Enhancing spatial detection accuracy for syndromic surveillance with stree. Spatial Scan Statistic The spatial detection software used by ESSENCE is adapted from SaTScan, a program developed by Kulldorff  which is widely accepted as the de facto standard for spatial-temporal detection of disease clusters.
Kulldorff's scan statistics are typically used to detect clusters of disease incidents in both time and space. With ESSENCE, purely spatial methods are used and a non-mathematical description of that statistic is given here. In short, a circular window is scanned across geographic space evaluating the number of observed and expected incidents inside the window at each location. Multiple window sizes are assessed at each location and adjustments are made for the variable density of the background population and the number of cases observed. ESSENCE spatial detection is based on the Poisson model.
The Bernoulli model is an alternative scan statistic wherein cases and "non-cases" are analyzed, e.g., patients with ILI symptoms and those without ILI symptoms.

Syndromic surveillance: faulty alarm system or useful tool? May 16, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – At first glance, the Web page looks like an overhead shot of a fantastic game board: a map—identifiably Los Angeles—sprinkled with faceted roundels in a half-dozen colors.
But the data graphically displayed at WhoIsSick.org are from the real world. The roundels represent reports of symptoms volunteered by site users: runny nose, cough, fever, headache, muscle aches, and digestive trouble. The site's founder, a California tech entrepreneur named PT Lee, drew on the new Web technology of Google Maps and the Web trend toward user participation to create a 21st-century service that a 19th-century epidemiologist would recognize: geographic surveillance of illness trends. WhoIsSick, which went live 2 months ago after a year of planning, grew out of Lee's frustration over his wife's holiday bout with a gastrointestinal bug. The site has registered about 200,000 visitors so far. The spike in interest was followed by a vast increase in funding. See also: WhoIsSick.

Surveillance capacity for such detection can be costly, and many countries lack the public health infrastructure to identify outbreaks at their earliest stages. Furthermore, there may be economic incentives for countries to not fully disclose the nature and extent of an outbreak.1 The Internet, however, is revolutionizing how epidemic intelligence is gathered, and it offers solutions to some of these challenges.

The global early warning system, named PREDICT, will be developed with funding of up to $75 million over five years and is one of five new initiatives of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) known in combination as the Emerging Pandemic Threats Program. EUROSURVEILLANCE Volume 14, Issue 44, 05 November 2009 Syndromic surveillance: the next phase of public health monitoring durin. In this edition of Eurosurveillance, Coory and colleagues describe the use of a deputising medical service for influenza-like illness (ILI) surveillance in Australia . They validate these novel surveillance data against a traditional general practitioner (GP) sentinel network. The use of sentinel GP surveillance networks is considered the gold standard of influenza surveillance in many European countries and formed the basis of the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), which tracked seasonal influenza across 30 European countries from 1996 to 2008 .
Coory et al. demonstrate that the data collected from the deputising medical service were comparable with the sentinel GP data, thus illustrating the potential of these novel surveillance data to track influenza. We are now in the midst of the first influenza pandemic the world has experienced for over 40 years. Triple-S – the syndromic surveillance project.
