This panel convenes an interdisciplinary group of nationally recognized experts in biosurveillance (BSV) to provide their perspectives on integrating novel data sources into standards of practice for various BSV functions by public health agencies at different levels. The discussion will focus on the utility of novel, electronic data sources (e.g., social media) that originate outside of traditional healthcare and public health channels. An audience response "clicker" system will be used to foster audience engagement. In alignment with the 2013 ISDS conference theme, the desired outcome is to identify priorities for research and evaluation that will advance BSV science and practice.
