Announcements: Epi Info 7 Software Released
CDC has released Epi Info 7 (available at http://www.cdc.gov/epiinfo), the latest version of its public-domain software designed to enable epidemiologists to create complex forms rapidly, collect large amounts of data, and quickly analyze information to assess situations. With Epi Info 7, users will be able to 1) distribute, deploy, and use Epi Info 7 during emergencies without requiring administrative privileges; 2) rapidly create complex questionnaires by dragging and dropping templates; 3) store data either on a server, when network infrastructure is available, or in local database files when disasters disrupt network connectivity; 4) link records together to assess relationships; and 5) visualize data on case-based cluster maps, social network analysis graphs, and a new visual dashboard.
Epi Info 7 also will enable future additions of web-based and mobile device--based extensions to the Epi Info platform.
