The National Collaborative for Bio-Preparedness (NCBP), operating as a partnership between University of North Carolina (UNC) and Biospatial, builds on a six-year pilot program developed between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and UNC to provide data-driven operational insight for national preparedness, response enterprise, and state and local responders.

Biospatial provides access to clinical and operational dashboards with near-real time information used to improve national bio-preparedness, operations and response. Multi-source data collection is developed into information that provides early warning of health and safety threats and trends and is used to detect anomalous events related to public health and safety, syndromic event detection, naturally-occurring health events, biological or chemical terrorism, and unexpected outbreaks.

Subscribers can set customizable syndromic alerts such as: Cardiac, Stroke, Respiratory Syndromes, Influenza-like illness, constitutional and opioid syndromes, and motor vehicle collision injuries.

NCBP operates in full HIPAA/HITECH-compliance and a maximum-security environment with fully encrypted data where data owners retain full control of access and visibility.

Florida Department of Health along with multi-agency cooperation supports the Biospatial platform and our local partner subscribers in a collaborative effort to improve situational awareness, response capabilities, and public health.

Please contact the Department at if you need further information about the Biospatial program.
