<p>The next decade of disease surveillance research will require novel methods to effectively use massive quantities of complex, high-dimensional data. We summarize two recent approaches which deal with the increasing complexity and scale of health data, including the use of rich text data to detect emerging outbreaks with novel symptom patterns, and fast subset scan methods to efficiently identify the most relevant patterns in massive datasets.</p>
