IntroductionClinical surveillance refers to the act of surveilling a clinical syndrome that have a significant impact on public health. Such techniques have been used in particular for infectious diseases. Many large institutions, such as the WHO, or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have created data bases, and modern computer systems that can tract and monitor emerging outbreaks of illnesses such as influenza, SARS, HIV, to biologic terrorism, such as the recent Anthrax attack on the post office system in the United States. Many states have cancer registries to monitor the incidence of cancers to determine the prevalence, and possible cause of these illnesses.Other illnesses such as chronic diseases such as obesity, and diabetes, as well as social illness such as domestic violence, are increasingly being integrated into epidemiologic data bases that are being used in Cost Benefit Analysis in determining governmental funding for research and prevent! ion. The benefits of such data cannot be underscored, but much of the statistics involves attaching worth to human lives, or years lived, with complex concepts as the converging of survival, quality of life, and productivity measures. The promotion of population based health care, that designed to reach an entire population, increasingly is integrated with converging registries, and outcomes increasingly being monitored as measurement of performance is a form of clinical surveillance.
