Modeling bioterrorism preparedness with simulation in rural healthcare system

Lisa Patvivatsiri; Elliot J. Montes; Ouyang Xi 2007 Winter Simulation Conference, 2007

As a result of the anthrax letter incidents in 2001, concerns about terrorists' use of biological agents have increased dramatically at government state and federal levels. The problem of providing sufficient resources in a healthcare system during a widespread bioterrorist attack is important issues all hospitals encounter. The innovative computer simulation models of the overall treatment process at Lubbock area ...


Causal Reasoning Engine: An Explanation-Based Approach to Syndromic Surveillance

B. B. Perry; T. Van Allen Proceedings of the 38th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2005

Quickly detecting an unexpected pathogen can save many lives. In cases of bioterrorism or naturally occurring epidemics, accurate diagnoses may not be made until much of the population has already been jeopardized. The goal of syndromic surveillance is to detect early anomalies that emerge from patient data in a given population area and to note disease patterns before more individuals ...


Analyst's workspace: Protecting vastopolis

Christopher Andrews; M. Shahriar Hossain; Samah Gad; Naren Ramakrishnan; Chris North 2011 IEEE Conference on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), 2011

Analyst's Workspace is a sensemaking environment designed specifically for use of large, high-resolution displays. It employs a spatial workspace to integrate foraging and synthesis activities into a unified process. In this paper we describe how Analyst's Workspace solved the VAST 2011 mini-challenge #3 and discuss some of the unique features of the environment.


Ontology-centered syndromic surveillance for bioterrorism

M. Crubezy; M. O'Connor; Z. Pincus; M. A. Musen; D. L. Buckeridge IEEE Intelligent Systems, 2005

In recent years, public health surveillance has become a priority, driven by concerns of possible bioterrorist attacks and disease outbreaks. Authorities argue that syndromic surveillance, or the monitoring of prediagnostic health- related data for early detection of nascent outbreaks, is crucial to preventing massive illness and death. Syndromic surveillance could prevent widespread illness and death, but public-health analysts face many ...


An integrated approach to mapping worldwide bioterrorism research capabilities

Yan Dang; Yulei Zhang; Nichalin Suakkaphong; Cathy Larson; Hsinchun Chen 2008 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics, 2008

Biomedical research used for defense purposes may also be applied to biological weapons development. To mitigate risk, the U.S. government has attempted to monitor and regulate biomedical research labs, especially those that study bioterrorism agents/diseases. However, monitoring worldwide biomedical researchers and their work is still an issue. In this study, we developed an integrated approach to mapping worldwide bioterrorism research ...

  • Systems Analysis Overview

    The Department of Defense and the military continually grapple with complex scientific, engineering, and technological problems. Defense systems analysis offers a way to reach a clearer understanding of how to approach and think about complex problems. It guides analysts in defining the question, capturing previous work in the area, assessing the principal issues, and understanding how they are linked. The goal of defense systems analysis is not necessarily to find a particular solution but to provide a roadmap to a solution, or an understanding of the relative value of alternative solutions. In this book, experts in the field--all of them with more than twenty years of experience-- offer insights, advice, and concrete examples to guide practitioners in the art of defense systems analysis. The book describes general issues in systems analysis and analysis protocols in specific defense areas. It offers a useful overview of the process, a discussion of different venues, and prac ical advice running a study and reporting its results. It discusses red teaming (the search for vulnerabilities that might be exploited by an adversary) and its complement, blue teaming (the search for solutions to known shortcomings). It describes real-world defense systems analysis for both traditional and nontraditional areas, including air defense and ballistic missile defense systems, bioterrorism defense, space warfare, and interplanetary communications. _Perspectives on Defense Systems Analysis_ is a very readable resource for analysts and engineers in industry, government, and research.

  • Systems Analysis in Nontraditional Areas
