AbstractFor over six months the Tarrant County Public Health Department has been sending data through the BioSense 2.0 application to a pilot version of ESSENCE on the Amazon GovCloud. This project has demonstrated the ability for local hospitals to send meaningful use syndromic surveillance data to the Internet cloud and provide public health officials tools to analyze the data both using BioSense 2.0 and ESSENCE. The presentation will describe the tools and techniques used to accomplish this, an evaluation of how the system has performed, and lessons learned for future health departments attempting similar projects.
