SORMAS Project: Containing Infectious Disease Outbreaks with Big Data Analysis 

The technology researched at Hasso Plattner Institute for lightning-fast and flexible processing and analysis of large amounts of data (In-Memory Data Management) ensures the creation of interactive, current status analysis. In this way trends are recognized early on and potential developments can be simulated. The detection of suspicious cases helps local stakeholders and specialists on various governmental levels efficiently organize the necessary countermeasures to stop the spread of disease

SORMAS - the future of epidemic surveillance 

Epidemiologists and IT experts from Germany and Nigeria have jointly developed an innovative app to help fight epidemics like ebola or cholera - the Surveillance Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System (SORMAS). This video explains why a tool like SORMAS is urgently needed and introduces the unique approach that makes SORMAS so powerful.

German scientists from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) and the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) in Braunschweig and Nigerian researchers are applying the new mobile information system for the first time to combat a monkeypox outbreak in Nigeria. The monkeypox epidemic has spread since September 2017 and, by now, afflicts 128 patients in 14 federal states in Nigeria. The name of the system, SORMAS, stands for "Surveillance, Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System"
