A secure web-based application based on the Surveillance Information New Zealand (SurvINZ) architecture.

Communicable diseases offer a significant risk to New Zealand's population. An effective national reporting system is essential to the prevention and control of communicable diseases. Notifiable disease surveillance activities in New Zealand are carried out by both local and national authorities. ESR operates the national notifiable disease surveillance database, EpiSurv, on behalf of the Ministry of Health.

EpiSurv collates notifiable disease information on a real-time basis from the Public Health Services (PHS) in New Zealand. Data collected include case demographics, clinical features and risk factors. EpiSurv also incorporates an outbreak functionality that enables cases to be linked via a common cause. Information can be viewed via customisable local and national reports and maps.
