Abstract
The goal of the Environment, Epidemiology, and Etiology Surveillance and Analysis Toolkit (E3SAT) project is to develop a data analysis infrastructure, models and templates to facilitate environmental, epidemiological and etiological analysis. E3SAT provides a research data cube and analysis tool suite that allows researchers to collect, integrate and data mine medical information, environmental exposures, and geographic location information. Medical information, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, orders, outcomes, influenza incidents, and geographic location information is assembled, integrated and analyzed in E3SAT. This data is supplemented with a wide range of open source data like global weather data; country population and demographics; trade, migration and tourism data; and economy and lifestyle data that are used to analyze the epidemiological and etiological factors involved. E3SAT employs data grid technology to facilitate distribution and management of data, data mining algorithms, and computation resources. The E3SAT Phase I successfully developed the data mining infrastructure and demonstrated the capability using avian influenza, biosurveillance and donor biovigilance applications. Phase II will develop a production prototype system and will implement technology transfer opportunities (Intelesense, Avian Influenza Mapping System, and Donor Biovigilance Portal). Phase II will integrate E3SAT technology with a biosurveillance community of interest (BCOI) portal (http://bioportal.kbsi.com/drupal/).
