New software tool detects and manages pandemics

Clinical Solutions : 13 June, 2007  (New Product)
New software has been launched by Clinical Solutions for the early detection and effective management of a pandemic outbreak.
The software from Clinical Solutions provides a means of managing medical resources following an epidemic or pandemic outbreak of disease, or a large scale emergency.

Bio Surveillance provides a series of algorithms which enables early detection, containment, real-time reporting and analysis of an outbreak. With its web based platform, the system can be operated and updated in real time, by multiple users, at disparate locations.

The software aims to steer healthcare professionals successfully through the complex healthcare delivery process, ensuring that patients are referred to the most appropriate level of care.

The system was successfully trialled during Exercise Cumpston, Australia's largest ever health simulation exercise and one of the largest pandemic influenza exercises held globally.

The application allows the clinician to quickly determine the potential presence of an infectious disease and direct the patient to take the most appropriate action.

This solution will ensure suitable access to health resources for both the patient and health worker at the time of an epidemic, such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) or Avian Influenza.

Dr Dennis McShane, chief medical officer, at Clinical Solutions leads the development of the product, 'In instances of an outbreak, governments and local authorities need to be able to act immediately, providing the appropriate level of care exactly where it is needed'.

'By having an effective means of giving the public access to immediate clinical expertise, collecting and analysing information, and deploying the right resources at the right times, pandemics can be contained and the level of risk to the population minimised'.

'Preparation is everything - having the tools to react quickly and effectively to these situations can make the difference between life and death'.
