When designing an outbreak detection system; it may be preferable to use existing medical data as input instead of requesting additional date from medical professionals. In this paper we propose using existing symptom data and reported immunological reactions in EPRs in combination with a model based on the anatomy of disease. We argue that these data for all patients in a geographical area are sufficient to indicate the increase in incidence of infectious diseases. We transform lexical patient data in a seven-step algorithm to a twodimensional space representing the medical anomalies in a geographical area.

Keywords: Epidemiological research; population surveillance; algorithms; syndromic surveillance; symptom model; patient clusters; immunological reactions
