TITLE: Research in Healthcare and Public Health Surveillance

SPEAKER: Dr. Kwok Tsui

ABSTRACT:

Due to various outbreaks of influenza and continuing bioterrorism threat, research efforts on healthcare and public health surveillance have become very important worldwide. In this talk we will explain and classify the various types of health surveillance problems. We review the latest research in surveillance systems, monitoring methods, and performance measures. We also discuss the research challenges and illustrate them with various problems and examples. In particular, we will compare the performance of MCUSUM and MEWMA charts for spatiotemporal surveillance.
