International Digital Disease Detection Conference at USF Sept. 18-20
Date:9/17/2013

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

The International Digital Disease Detection Conference, co-hosted by HealthMap at Boston Children’s Hospital and Skoll Global Threats Fund, will take place at the University of San Francisco (USF) Sept. 18-20. Digital disease detection refers to the use of digital sources, web searches, and other technology to surface early signals of disease outbreaks and improve the ability to stop the spread of contagious diseases. The three-day conference connects innovators in technology, healthcare, and education to discuss the ever-emerging convergence of Internet technology and information gathering to advance the way infectious diseases are discovered, tracked, and treated.

Approximately 320 attendees from around the globe are expected to participate in further defining the field of study. This second annual conference will include:

  •     Keynote speeches given by representatives from Facebook and Quid.
  •     Panel discussions on big data, predictive analytics, and the ethics of digital disease detection.
  •     Rapid fire talks on data mining and crowd sourcing.
  •     Workshops on epidemiology curriculum development, improving illness surveillance, and using DDD to track vaccine coverage.

Judith Karshmer, dean of the USF School of Nursing and Health Professions and commissioner on the San Francisco Health Commission, is honored that USF is serving as the academic gathering place for this important meeting of the minds. “We see the benefits of technology in healthcare everyday,” said Karshmer. “It’s imperative that we take time to discuss and debate the ways healthcare and technology intersect so that our work is ethical, innovative, and dedicated to improving public health.”
