BioSense Platform Data Flow - Part 2 - Introduction to ESSENCE Configuration for BioSense Platform


The National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) is conducting a three-part webinar series to describe how data will flow to the BioSense Platform. This comprehensive series explores how data are ingested into the BioSense Platform and ESSENCE application and how BioSense 2.0 data are being migrated.

The second webinar in the BioSense Platform Data Flow series will include a recap of suggested changes to the Archive data flow process that we originally covered in part 1 of the webinar series. In addition, we will cover data ingestion into the ESSENCE application, basic ESSENCE processing, and ESSENCE settings to consider. The webinar will cover how the BioSense Platform Archive will push data into the ESSENCE application and how those data may appear on the front-end web application component of ESSENCE.
