Surveillance Outbreak and Response Management System (SORMAS)

A Management Tool for Containing Infectious Disease Outbreaks

SORMAS: Surveillance Outbreak and Response Management System

Managing outbreaks of infectious diseases, such as the recent Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa, requires a large effort in resource management and especially tracing potential new infections. SORMAS is a management tool to support identifying emerging infections and suspected cases. At SAPPHIRE, we demonstrate how a mobile application as integral part of SORMAS supports field workers in monitoring and tracing contacts of infected persons.
