Group of Users Health Detection System

Further methods are needed to for the prevention and detection of human disease .

The novel contribution is a system and method to analyze and determine the health of a group of people who are in the same location, detect infectious disease, alert other nearby individuals, and avoid a massive spread of an infection.

The novel system comprises a combination of techniques to detect the health status of a group of people . If the system detects infectious disease, then it triggers an alert to nearby individuals. This alert can initiate appropriate action and help prevent the spread of the disease.

One type of health detection is manual; the user indicates a level of health in a smart phone application. Another type of health detection is automatic. Known techniques* analyze the text provided in social networks (or any other communication technology) by the affected users.

After the system detects a health situation that puts people at risk of infection , it locates nearby users and the associated mobile devices (e.g., smart phones), and then sends urgent text/voice/video alerting messages, providing full disease information, as well as the possible cause.
