HOW OUR INFECTIOUS DISEASE SYSTEM WORKS
We at Bridgecrest Medical have designed a powerful end-to-end solution that can serve as a safeguard against the spread of Ebola and other infectious diseases. By pairing the latest diagnostic tools with predictive analytics and smart maps, our tools empower leaders to keep their people safe from the world’s deadliest diseases—such as Ebola, malaria and HIV.
Here’s how it works.
- Test with Mobile Diagnostic Tools
Onsite medical personnel test employees and community members for the diseases in question, using the latest diagnostic tools. We partner with the manufacturers of these tools—like paper-based tests for the Ebola virus—to make them available to your organization. With a small blood sample or nasal swab, get a quick yes-or-no result (much like a pregnancy test) without onsite electricity or sending samples to a lab. These tests cost significantly less than other methods and the level of accuracy is high.
- Input Results
The same person who conducts the tests (often a nurse) can input the results into a mobile phone or tablet interface. Each entry automatically includes geographic data as well as a time and date stamp. Patient data and other comments can be uploaded at the same time.
- Track Trends
Bridgecrest Medical’s powerful healthcare analytics platform creates an interactive map of reported cases, both within your organization and from a broader range of sources. This lets you see the risks and trends in real time and allocate resources immediately—no need to wait for public announcements, which can take weeks to reach core decision-makers.
- Monitor Cases
If the tests show positive results, this information is immediately relayed to the medical clinic, as well as to your organization’s top decision-makers. This provides all parties involved with the information needed—in real time—to prevent a single case from turning into the next epidemic.
- Maintain Systems
One of the biggest challenges in fighting Ebola has been the lack of strong public health systems in the affected regions. The crisis inspired a new focus on building health infrastructure to meet local needs. We are proud to provide tools and technology to support leaders in reaching these goals. Health systems implemented to fight one virus, such as Ebola, can be equally viable in stopping other infectious diseases like malaria or Lassa virus before they escalate into true crises.
