A pandemic is a worldwide epidemic that, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), has to meet three conditions:

 

The microbe infects and causes serious illness in humans.

 

Humans do not have immunity against the virus.

 

The virus spreads easily from person to person and survives within humans.

 

By connecting physicians, epidemiologists, and  surveillance communities, you have a chance to produce an unprecedented  worldwide organization to monitor the health of the world. The Global  Public Health Information Network (GPHIN) has already produced the  evidence that the Web can alert the world to a nascent threat. Now, you  need to take this evidence and build a program to harness the power of  social media for public health concerns.

 

Information systems and the Internet, through  integration with clinical information systems and EMRs, can improve  biosurveillance outcomes globally.

 

Using the module readings, Argosy University online  library resources, and the Internet, research ways to manage a global  pandemic. Then respond to the following:

 

What would be the most effective, efficient, timely, and  cost-effective way to plan for and manage a global pandemic? Why?  Support your rationale with scholarly references.

 

Comment on the functionality of the GPHIN and explain how information systems can improve biosurveillance outcomes.

 

Write a 2–3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
