Aspect

IoT Software to Prevent Future Outbreaks

Organization: SystemOne

Location: Springfield, Massachusetts, USA

Problem: Historically, diagnostic devices in the developing world have operated in the dark, with results copied by hand to paper forms and registers then transported by motorcycle to report. This delays treatment, increases time for disease to spread, and makes visibility into the system and resource allocation nearly impossible.

Solution: SystemOne is developing a connectivity platform (Aspect) that provides an end-to-end solution enabling diagnostic devices to report results and integrate with health systems in real-time. The web-based application delivers disease and device information with easy to understand dashboards and messaging to key stakeholders around the world for appropriate action. The solution allows visibility into diagnostic systems and results, which enables reduced time to patient treatment, real-time surveillance of disease, and clear picture of device operation and supply consumption. SystemOne is also designing a mobility pack to connect Aspect to diagnostic devices in remote clinics with fragile infrastructure and enable data from these remote devices to be reported more quickly.

"To help solve problems, improve global public health and trite as it may seem, make a difference for the good of this world. Aspect is an integrated data management system that transmits information from medical diagnostic devices in remote areas of the world and presents it clearly to the people who need it most. Aspect provides an end-to-end solution enabling diagnostic devices to report results and integrate with health systems in real-time. The web-based application delivers disease and device information with easy to understand dashboards and messaging to key stakeholders around the world allowing for appropriate action. The solution provides visibility into diagnostic systems and results, which enables reduced time to patient treatment, real-time surveillance of disease, and a clear picture of device operation and supply consumption."
