Formatted abstract
Timely reporting, effective analyses and rapid distribution of surveillance data can assist in detecting the aberration of disease occurrence and further facilitate a timely response. In China, a new nationwide web-based automated system for outbreak detection and rapid response was developed in 2008. The China Infectious Disease Automatedalert and Response System (CIDARS) was developed by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention based on the surveillance data from the existing electronic National Notifiable Infectious Diseases Reporting Information System (NIDRIS) started in 2004. NIDRIS greatly improved the timeliness and completeness of data reporting with real-time reporting information via the Internet. CIDARS further facilitates the data analysis, aberration detection, signal dissemination, signal response and information communication needed by public health departments across the country. In CIDARS, three aberration detection methods are used to detect the unusual occurrence of 28 notifiable infectious diseases at the county level and transmit information either in real time or on a daily basis. The Internet, computers and mobile phones are used to accomplish rapid signal generation and dissemination, timely reporting and reviewing of the signal response results. CIDARS has been used nationwide since 2008; all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in China at the county, prefecture, provincial and national levels are involved in the system. It assists with early outbreak detection at the local level and prompts reporting of unusual disease occurrences or potential outbreaks to CDCs throughout the country.

疾病监测数据的及时报告、有效分析和分析结果的快速分发有助于早期发现疾病的异常变化并采取及时的控制 措施。中国于 2008年建立了基于互联网的暴发探测和快速响应系统—中国传染病自动预警与响应系统(China Infectious Disease Automated-alert and Response System, CIDARS)。该系统由中国疾病预防控制中心开发, 以 2004年建立的国家疾病监测信息报告管理系统 (National Notifiable Infectious Diseases Reporting Information System, NIDRIS) 的监测数据为基础。NIDRIS实现了通过互联网实时报告传染病个案,大大提高了报告数据的 及时性和完整性,CIDARS的建立进一步促进了传染病的数据分析、异常信息探测、异常信号的发布和响应以及 全国公共卫生部门的信息共享。CIDARS以县为单位,采用三种预警方法探测28种法定报告传染病的发病异常变 化,并实时或每日发出预警信号,利用互联网、计算机和移动电话实现了预警信号的自动探测和发送、以及信 号响应结果的及时报告和查看。CIDARS于2008年部署到国家、省、市和县的各级疾病预防控制中心(CDC),有 助于基层CDC早期发现传染病暴发,并将发病异常或潜在的暴发报告给各级CDC。
