v7.0 [5 Nov 2011]
Epi Info™ 7 provides new capabilities that are designed to make it easier for epidemiologists to rapidly create complex forms, collect large amounts of data, and quickly analyze data to gain situational awareness. Specifically, users will now be able to:
Distribute, deploy, and use Epi Info™ 7 during emergencies without ever requiring elevated privileges on a machine.
Quickly create event-specific forms by dragging and dropping templates.
Create complex questionnaire templates in advance that can be distributed and rapidly customized during emergencies.
Use new "Check Code" logic on forms such as Geocode, ZScore, EpiWeek, Enable, Disable, and Highlight.
Create forms that have more than 255 fields.
Store data either on a SQL Server when a network infrastructure is available or on local MS Access-compatible files when disasters disrupt network connectivity.
Collect data concurrently in a multi-user environment.
Link records together to create exposure relationships.
Visualize data on case-based cluster maps, social network analysis graphs, and a powerful new Visual Dashboard.
Create surveillance systems that leverage Early Aberration Reporting System (EARS) algorithms.
Perform nutritional anthropometry using up to date CDC and WHO standards.
Receive updates when new features, templates, and fixes become available.
