Utah will soon be rolling out a statewide system for disease reporting that promises to automate and make the process more transparent. The system, called TriSano?, is an open source project licensed under the Affero GPL. According to TriSano, its name is a composite of two ideas:

Tri is a prefix meaning three. Tri represents the collaboration between local, state and federal entities. It depicts the primary disciplines of public health: epidemiology, biostatistics and health services. Tri also refers to the epidemiological triad of people, place, and time.

Sano is an adjective meaning promoting good health.
