Disease Surveillance Solutions

Building the next generation technology in disease surveillance 

How can states ensure they are prepared for the next pandemic or public health crisis? A scalable disease surveillance system with robust reporting capabilities is key.

Altarum’s surveillance systems can withstand exponential increases in reported cases, are easily configurable to address changing dynamics, and are fully interoperable so data flows from all local points to the state health department.

We integrate monitoring capabilities that enable public health officials to quickly and accurately identify outbreaks, emerging variants, and other threats. Our reporting features and dashboards provide immediate insight into population health trends, such as how groups are impacted based on race or pre-existing conditions.

As states recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re helping them build the next generation of disease surveillance technology. 

Here's our approach:

We combine expertise in public health, technology and interoperability.

 We’re a cross-functional team of software engineers, data scientists, and public health analysts who work together to create a holistic public health solution.

We’re more than an IT vendor; we’re a partner in public health.

Unlike typical IT vendors, we’re a nonprofit, mission-driven organization dedicated to helping state governments advance health through technology.

We draw from decades of experience in disease surveillance.

Our team draws on 20 years of experience advancing public health technology for states, from building surveillance and syndromic systems to enhancing interoperability.

We build systems for the next generation, not just the next crisis.

Our systems remain on the cutting edge through an innovative architecture that allows updates to be made seamlessly when and where they are needed.
