2017 | The politics of participatory epidemiology: Technologies, social media and influenza surveillance in the US, Health Policy and Technology, Vol. 6, no 2, pp.192-197.
The main objective of this article is to explore the policy implications of such a revolution, an issue that has been surprisingly largely ignored by the literature in public policy. The research question underpinning this analysis is: what are the policy implications of the growing use of knowledge/data from Internet-based technologies for health surveillance in the US? The theoretical importance and challenges of these technologies for public policies conclude this paper.
