TriSano & Collaborative Software Initiative (CSI) open source public health solution honored

Press Release | Las Vegas Review-Journal | April 30, 2012

The Southern Nevada Health District announced its annual Public Health Heroes last week at its board meeting. The Collaborative Software Initiative (CSI) was one of the honorees.  “CSI has worked with the health district’s office of epidemiology since 2010 on a project to modernize the electronic systems used for disease investigation and epidemiologic analysis. CSI developed an open-source system, named TriSano, which was developed for the Utah Department of Health. An open-source system means that the software is owned and developed by a user community rather than a software vendor. The TriSano system allows health district staff to quickly investigate and understand infectious disease problems and patterns in our community. The long-term goals of the health district include adapting the system so it can also be used the HIV/AIDS, STD, and TB programs as well.”
