Deploy Datahub. Fast.

Take DataHub out of the box. Configure your data collection forms. Define the type of surveillance, geographic level and frequency of reporting according to your needs. Get started within a matter of hours.

Offline data collection

Distribute phones and collect data offline using EWARS Mobile. Queue up reports and submit to DataHub even over poor networks.

Share results

Generate customised analysis and publish automated bulletins from DataHub. One click and its ready to share with others.

Alert thresholds

Configure alert thresholds for diseases/health events under surveillance. Use advanced features if needed to define complex algorithms.

Define notifications

Determine when and how you and other users will receive notifications, including via desktop, SMS or email. Choose to know right away, or only at certain times like the end of the day.


Use DataHub to manage the workflow for each alert; including verification, risk assessment and risk characterisation.

Line list cases

Collect data on individual cases at health-centre or community level. Pinpoint exact location of each case using GPS coordinates.


Submit data to DataHub and generate real-time maps and epidemic curves to follow the outbreak.

Manage Laboratory surveillance

Integrate laboratory users into your network and promote rapid turn-around of samples and immediate notification of test results.
