Infectious disease informatics is a subfield of security informatics that focuses on information analysis and management issues critical to the prevention, detection, and management of naturally occurring or terrorist-engineered infectious disease outbreaks. We have developed a research prototype called BioPortal which provides an integrated environment to support cross-jurisdictional and cross-species infectious disease information sharing, integration, analysis, and reporting. This paper reports a pilot study evaluating BioPortal's usability, user satisfaction, and potential impact on practice.
