MedicineMicrobiology spectrum
2014
TLDR
Web-based early warning systems, such as ProMED-mail, the Global Public Health Intelligence Network (GPHIN), and Health Map, have been able to recognize emerging infectious diseases earlier than traditional surveillance systems, and are now widely utilized by individuals, humanitarian organizations, and government health ministries.
