Abstract

In this paper, we describe two Web 2.0 based systems designed to facilitate and enhance collaborative eHealth research activities. Using a combination of Forums, Wikis and connectivity to 3rd party social networking systems, we have designed systems to support collaborative document creation (including editing, reviewing and publication), dissemination of material to relevant communities, discussion of ideas, and sharing of opinions. The ECDC Field Epidemiology Manual Wiki and Medicine Support Unit Online Forums are presented herein, including an overview to the system architectures, and user interaction models. We present our planned methods of evaluation, focusing on the ability to measure successful and sustainable community involvement.
