For more than two decades, CHIP has been pioneering in methods and approaches for modern biosurveillance, the continuous collection and analysis of population health data for public health intelligence. We helped create the discipline of syndromic surveillance and development of one of the first web-based biosurveillance systems, AEGIS deployed to dozens of hospitals in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. CHIP also invented participatory surveillance and news and social media-based surveillance, and was an early innovator in postmarketing surveillance.
