This is the information and communication technology center of the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service. Information on medication prescribed by hospitals and clinics nationwide is collected here in real time. Data from 5.1 billion cases has been stored in this safe pharmaceutical use information system since 2010. The government has established a system to analyze this data and detect early signs of infectious disease outbreaks. Currently, an outbreak of an infectious disease can only be identified through reports from hospitals and clinics. But for 24 infectious diseases including influenza, health authorities' responses could be delayed, since it takes up to a week for them to receive reports on initial cases. In fact, this year's spread of influenza surpassed the conditions for a declaration of a pandemic as early as last month, but a flu alert was issued only early this month.

[Soundbite] Heo Gyu-young(Korea University Guro Hospital) : "The first and second week can be very critical for infectious diseases. In those cases, it would be better if a warning is issued earlier orreliable agencies provide information."

Starting with influenza next year, the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning and the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service will gradually expand the use of big data analysis for early identification of the outbreaks and spread of infectious diseases.
