SystemOne Launches Aspect Disease Intelligence Platform

Dramatic step forward in disease detection and response to link to treatment, curb outbreaks, and end epidemics

Springfield, MA and Johannesburg, South Africa – June 27, 2018 -  SystemOne today announced the launch of Aspect, a new disease intelligence platform based on the company’s work in over 40 countries. Aspect offers countries a proven means to understand disease burdens, accelerate response, and manage diagnostic equipment and supplies.  

Aspect is a completely new iteration of a product that began as GxAlert, the first platform to connect GeneXperts in 40+ countries, managing nearly 5 million TB, Ebola, and HIV diagnostic results. Aspect extends these capabilities to connect to any device and handle any diagnostic data in any country.

Aspect offers advanced features for clinical and operational control, and provides an extremely flexible platform, with easily customizable reports and SMS, email and dashboard communications. Some of Aspect’s features include:

  • Delivering diagnostic results to clinicians, supervisors, officials and even patients
  • Collecting and protecting patient data
  • Linking diagnosis to treatment
  • Stock-out prevention and supply management
  • Supply use-rate analysis and forecasting
  • Device utilization and maintenance analysis
  • Fully customizable communication and reporting features
  • Advanced user permissions to control data access
  • Easy integration with laboratory information systems or EMRs
  • World-class data protection and security

“Medical diagnostics are the key to identifying and responding to disease as quickly as possible,” said Chris Macek, CEO of SystemOne. “Unfortunately, the power of diagnostics cannot be unlocked if data isn’t delivered and interpreted rapidly. If data can move faster than disease, humanity will win the fight against rapidly-spreading infectious diseases.”

“Today, around the world, our customers are deploying platforms ranging from electronic medical records (EMRs) to laboratory information systems,” said Aaron Oppenheimer, Product Manager for Aspect. “Our mission is to create the missing piece that ensures the rapid movement of actionable data through health systems, acting in concert with whatever other data systems a customer has. For regions or health systems that have no data infrastructure, Aspect can manage it all. Aspect ensures the right information gets to the right person at the right time in the cycle of care.”

Launch of the 2018 TB Data Fellowship Program to Build Data Analytics Capacity with Ministry of Health and National Tuberculosis Program Staff

June 20, 2018 – SystemOne LLC, (Springfield, MA), Management for Health Sciences (MSH) (Medford, MA) and the Tableau Foundation (Seattle, WA) today announced a partnership designed to enable countries to better utilize and respond to the millions of infectious disease patient records being collected via SystemOne’s GxAlert and Aspect connected diagnostics platforms. This exciting new initiative, the TB Data Fellowship Program, will build the foundation for sustainable, in-country capacity to enhance the translation of diagnostic data into improved healthcare delivery and patient impact through the development of the next level of GxAlert user.

By using Tableau, the world’s leading visual analytics software, countries will learn how to explore, analyze, visualize and interpret their national TB program data.

Data fellows will develop the expertise and skills needed to identify program gaps and appropriate interventions in order to lower operating costs, improve the quality of the TB program, improve program management, reduce time to treatment and ultimately improve patient outcomes.

The first Data Fellowship hands-on classroom training will be hosted by SystemOne in Johannesburg, South Africa. Delegates representing Mozambique, Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Bangladesh and Ethiopia will participate. This intensive training will cover Tableau software navigation and analysis of GxAlert data. The full fellowship will continue for one year of ongoing mentorship to promote ongoing skills development and a platform for sharing of best practices. 

“This partnership with Management Sciences for Health and Tableau Foundation will help countries unlock the incredible value in their health data,” said Dr Alaine Nyaruhirira, Senior Technical Advisor,  MSH. “Empowering local Ministries of Health and National Tuberculosis Program staff to discover and fix critical inefficiencies in their health systems and tell powerful, data-driven stories using Tableau will lead to data-supported improvements in national TB programs.”

“We hope to strengthen, improve and complement National TB programs in low and middle-income countries by building sustainable, in-country capacity to enhance the translation of GxAlert data into improved healthcare delivery and patient impact,” said Natasha Gous, Medical Science Liaison at SystemOne.

“Through the Tableau Foundation, we continue to see how making the right data accessible to the right people at the right time can profoundly curtail the spread of infectious disease,”  said Neal Myrick, Global Head of the Tableau Foundation. “ We’re thrilled about this fellowship and SystemOne’s work to reduce the burden of TB around the world.”

SystemOne and TIMS Connect Diagnostics Across 8 Countries to Help Address TB in Mining Communities

May 30, 2018  – Springfield, MA, and Johannesburg, South Africa – SystemOne, a connected diagnostics company using data to drive healthcare impact and solutions, today announced its work with the program “TB in the Mining Sector in Southern Africa” (TIMS). Working together since early 2018, SystemOne and TIMS are connecting 11 diagnostic devices -- GeneXperts in this case -- in Occupational Health Service Centers across Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. These services include TB testing on the GeneXpert MTB/RIF assay.

These Occupational Health Service Centers face the challenge of monitoring TB testing and reporting for the program, ensuring instruments are working, and managing inventory for remote testing sites that are spread across 8 countries.

SystemOne is connecting all 11 instruments across the 8 countries to allow TIMS project coordinators located centrally in JHB, South Africa, to remotely monitor:

  • Number of tests being performed under the project
  • Instrument status (error rates, utilization rates, downtime)
  • Stock levels to ensure proper inventory management

Project staff including clinic nurses will be able to generate and receive automated reports on monthly basis, thereby easing and ensuring reliable reporting to stakeholders and funders.

“The rates of TB infection amongst the mining sector of Southern Africa are some of the highest in the world, driven by factors such as high rates of HIV infection, silicosis, poor access to routine health services, overcrowding and circular migration,” said Brad Cunningham, VP Strategic Initiatives, SystemOne. “Connecting GeneXperts is an important step in understanding how TB and co-infections are spreading, while ensuring that the investment in modern diagnostics pays off.”

The TIMS initiative, launched across 10 countries in Southern Africa, aims to create a regionally coordinated response to TB and related illnesses affecting mine workers, former mine workers, their families and communities. One of the main goals is to increase TB case finding among key populations in the mining sector. For more information on TIMS, please click on: https://www.timssa.co.za/Whoweare/AboutTIMS.aspx
