A valuable book, published earlier this year, provides a practical, comprehensive examination of biosurveillance--the systematic process of data collection and analysis for the purposes of detecting and characterizing outbreaks of disease in humans and animals in a timely manner.

The Handbook of Biosurveillance, by Michael Wagner, Andrew Moore, and Ron Aryel (Elsevier Inc., 2006), can greatly benefit its target audience of epidemiologists, health directors and authorities, infection control practitioners, researchers and IT professionals at organizations that conduct biosurveillance. Wagner and Moore are well known in the biosurveillance and academic communities; they led the team of software developers at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University who, with funding from the Department of Homeland Security, created the Real-Time Outbreak and Disease Surveillance (RODS) system, now successfully used in 12 of the U.S. states, Canada and Taiwan.

The Handbook of Biosurveillance defines and describes the state-of-the-art in biosurveillance practice and research and is unique in the depth of its coverage of all facets of this emerging discipline. The book offers practical advice for first responders and public health officials as well as an in-depth discussion of the theoretical underpinnings of biosurveillance for researchers. It includes and offers expert advice on how to construct and evaluate biosurveillance systems, assemble and analyze data, and build relationships across organizations. It also includes a section devoted to supporting and improving the decision-making ability of public health authorities and other decision-makers. The book provides a basis for determining when available biosurveillance data supports issuing an alert or not.
