The Canadian Swine Health Intelligence Network (CSHIN) was developed to help Canadian swine veterinarians and producers deal more effectively with swine disease. It consists of two integrated components; a social network and a web-based data collection, analysis and reporting system. The organizational structure engages the data and information providers directly in the decision making (governance) processes. The data collected include farm level syndrome prevalence as well as clinical and laboratory diagnoses. The CSHIN has demonstrated that it can provide value to both individual producers and the industry as a whole.
