DIAL: A Platform for real-time Laboratory Surveillance

, : DIAL: A Platform for real-time Laboratory Surveillance. Online Journal of Public Health Informatics 2(3): -

Laboratory information systems fulfill many of the requirements for individual result management within a public health laboratory. However, access to the systems by data users, timely data extraction, integration, and data analysis are difficult tasks. These difficulties are further complicated by often having multiple laboratory results for specific analytes or related analytes per specimen tested as part of complex laboratory algorithms requiring specialized expertise for result interpretation. We describe DIAL, (Data Integration for Alberta Laboratories), a platform allowing laboratory data to be extracted, interpreted, collated and analyzed in near real-time using secure web based technology, which is adapted from CNPHI's Canadian Early Warning System (CEWS) technology. The development of DIAL represents a major technical advancement in the public health information management domain, building capacity for laboratory based surveillance.
