Every minute counts when public health is at risk.
Local, state and national entities recognize the urgent need to accurately detect and rapidly analyze biological hazards to ensure public health and safety.
Bio-security depends on bio-preparedness. The United States will be prepared.
The National Collaborative for Bio-Preparedness (NCB-Prepared) responds to this need with a comprehensive system that improves surveillance, awareness and responsiveness to emergent threats, and supports better care and health outcomes for Americans.
In its first phase, the project brought together novel data sources, advanced analytics, and computational resources to produce earlier signals of health threats that inform action. In its succeeding phases, it has deployed a robust and highly-available system to bring in data, derive signals, and visualize information at the local, state, and national scales. The next phase will bring national reach and service to the federal, state, and local levels.
