ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effort of the National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to improve the security of the nation. According to NBIC Director Eric Myers, the mission of the NBIC is to identify, characterize, localize and track a biological event of national concern, integrate and analyze health data, and disseminate alerts and information. But NBIC has to meet three goals to actualize this vision. Two of the challenges facing NBIC involves information exchange and information technology.
