Information Sharing and Collaboration:
Applications to Integrated Biosurveillance:
Workshop Summary

After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and subsequent anthrax mailings, the U.S. government prioritized a biosurveillance strategy aimed at detecting, monitoring, and characterizing national security health threats in human and animal populations, food, water, agriculture, and the environment. However, gaps and challenges in biosurveillance efforts and integration of biosurveillance activities remain. September 8-9, 2011, the Institute of Medicine held a workshop to explore the information-sharing and collaboration processes needed for the nation's integrated biosurveillance strategy. This is a report of that workshop.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 30, 2011 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
