      When H1N1 flu exploded in the spring of 2009, a national coalition of academic, public health, government and industry experts quickly created and deployed a user-friendly, interactive, on-line decision support tool to allow members of the public to self-assess symptoms and make informed decisions about seeking care. In cooperation with Microsoft, this on-line tool was offered free to the public via the H1N1ResponseCenter.com website. This website (built on Microsoft Azure) also offered a free link to HealthVault, where data from the assessment could be saved, shared, and with permission captured in a national database (built on Microsoft Amalga Unified Intelligence System) for syndromic surveillance. Early experience suggests that this may be a useful strategy to safely mitigate health system demand surge that often occurs during a pandemic. It may also be useful in generating epidemiological intelligence in real-time to better manage healthcare resources. The U.S. Government (flu.gov) and others provided similar online resources. This session will discuss how partnerships between public and private industry can work together toward innovative solutions employing new connected health technologies.
