Dina B. Passman

Abstract


Fusion Analytics is the data integration system developed by the Fusion Cell at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR). Fusion Analytics meaningfully augments traditional public health surveillance and reporting by providing web-based data analysis and visualization tools using an off-the shelf product and with limited development funding. It also provides the unique example of a public health information system that combines patient data with manpower and resource data to provide overall decision support for federal public health and medical disaster response operations.
