Researchers at HealthMap just published work on Zika in Colombia here: http://publichealth.jmir.org/2016/1/e30/

Having worked with HealthMap on a number of projects, I think they would consider this type of approach but in outbreak scenarios it will be important to get government buy-in to ensure sharing of this type of data is done in a way that protects patient privacy and ensures coordination with outbreak responders.
