In the fall of 2013 ISDS and the BioSense Redesign team began collaborating on a BioSense 2.0 Webinar Series to provide current and potential BioSense users with a solid understanding of the platform's use.
Since October ISDS has co-hosted seven webinars covering a variety of platform and syndrome-specific topics. Whether you use BioSense as your sole syndromic surveillance system or are working to build a case to your state to sign the BioSense DUA, there are presentations that provide a cogent, clear argument for BioSense's efficacy. All the BioSense 2.0 Webinar Series webinars are available through this link.
