BioAware - Riskaware

Our advanced disease outbreak modelling platform

BioAware, the Biosurveillance Data Fusion and Forecasting System is a sophisticated biosurveillance (BSV) tool which aims to detect, classify and model disease outbreaks within the population. The modelling platform aims to provide decision makers with superior situational awareness and a progress forecast for any outbreak, allowing for swifter and more effective infection spread prevention.

Components Detail

At the core of BioAware is BSV, a component of Dstl’s HASP Suite. The core algorithm combines a particle filter, a multi-disease compartmental model and multiple Bayesian networks to provide enhanced situational awareness based on all the available data. BSV’s automated detection and classification of outbreaks can combine multiple data sources and account for known patterns in healthcare seeking behaviour. The resulting outbreak modelling and disease spread forecasting is designed to be used to aid the planning of response interventions. BioAware also includes the CrystalCast capability, developed by Dstl and supported by Riskaware, Public Health England and the University of Southampton. CrystalCast is a disease forecasting tool combining multiple epidemiological models to forecast the spread of disease outbreaks, estimate the likely impacts on the population and understand the uncertainties in the modelling outputs.
