SystemOne Launches Aspect Reporter App for Real-Time Diagnostic Results Reporting and Link to Treatment

SystemOne has launched Aspect Reporter, an Android app designed to report diagnostic lab results back to clinicians and confirm patient links to treatment.  This improves upon earlier electronic notification methods to send test results using SMS or email. The Aspect Reporter app offers bank-level security and privacy of lab results while making them all available in the clinician’s hand. Additionally, the app allows for customized workflows so health-care workers can report on follow-up, acknowledge receipt, confirm patient treatment, and more.

SystemOne Announces GxAlert and Aspect Now Support HCV and Upgraded Connection to OpenLDR

SystemOne’s commitment to linking diagnosis to treatment expands to address additional diseases and co-infections

Springfield, MA and Johannesburg, South Africa – April 29, 2019 - SystemOne, which provides the digital backbone for infectious disease diagnostics, announced today that the platforms  Aspect® and GxAlert® now transmit Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) data. Aspect and GxAlert have processed and transmitted thousands of Xpert® HCV Viral Load results in several resource-limited geographies. The platforms can also process HCV results from other devices and assays.

With HCV now curable, moving HCV diagnostic data in near real-time is critical to closing gaps between diagnosis and treatment, identifying disease hot-spots and raising cure rates, in addition to increasing efficiencies and reducing the extraordinary costs associated with infectious disease diagnostics and treatment.

An estimated 71 million people are infected with chronic HCV, and the disease is responsible for an estimated 399,000 deaths per year and 1.75 million new infections annually, according to the World Health Organization. Unlike some other infectious diseases, for example HIV and TB, the number of deaths due to viral hepatitis is increasing.

“Appropriate medicine can cure over 95% of persons infected with Hepatitis C,” said Chris Macek, CEO, SystemOne. “But robust data solutions are needed to inform the best use of clinical, logistical, global health and pharmaceutical resources. In addition strong data solutions will reduce loss to follow-up, increase treatment adherence and allow health ministries to understand treatment and program efficacy.”

Link to OpenLDR

SystemOne also announces an upgraded link to the Open Laboratory Data Repository (OpenLDR). The OpenLDR provides a single storage location for country-wide electronic data regarding laboratory requests and results. This allows laboratory managers to easily view relevant data for the entire country, different geographic levels or detailed data down to the lab and section.

“While our platforms were always able to link to OpenLDR, we’ve made substantial changes to integrate with Mozambique’s installation in particular,” said Stefan Baumgartner, Chief Product Engineer, SystemOne. “This upgraded link can now be used in any country to securely transmit results on a schedule to OpenLDR.”

SystemOne provides a variety of reports to countries to help them understand HCV diagnostics and results in near real-time.

The SystemOne Diagnostic-to-Treatment Grant

Building A Better Link From Diagnosis to Treatment

Working in partnership with a high-burden TB country to close the lab-clinic divide and confirm treatment for all positive TB cases

March 24, 2019 — In honor of World TB day, SystemOne is proud to announce a grant opportunity of in-kind services to help the Recipient connect positive TB diagnoses to treatment. The in-kind services will focus on connecting several diagnostic devices to Aspect, the multi-disease, multi-device digital data platform, and then connecting that data to a TB case management system. SystemOne will connect a GeneXpert point of care (POC) device and central laboratory diagnostics, such as MGIT and LPA, at 1 (one) central or national-level laboratory. This connectivity with multiple instruments, and use of Aspect to link positive cases to treatment, is designed to dramatically reduce loss to follow-up, account for every positive diagnosis, and enable rapid electronic results reporting via app, email or SMS.

Also included in the grant is a data deep-dive to immediately gain insight into how patients proceed through the cascade of diagnostics and then onto treatment. The deep dive will also analyze impact measurements on turnaround time, time to treatment initiation, and the gap between diagnosis and treatment -- and how the intervention has helped to narrow that gap.

The in-kind grant’s estimated value is $70,000 USD.

Background

A person experiencing signs and symptoms of TB faces many challenges to timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Many of these bottlenecks can be characterized as delays.

  • Delays between ordering a diagnostic test and receiving the results;

  • Delays in initiating treatment due to the challenges of interpreting complex results and the unavailability of appropriate drugs for treatment; and

  • Delays in proactive longitudinal monitoring of patients to prevent drug resistance and negative patient outcomes.

These delays prolong illness, fuel the outbreak of drug resistant TB (DR TB), and constrain efforts to improve patient outcomes. They make it more difficult to identify where to put resources, to notify patients and clinicians, to confirm positive diagnoses are on treatment, and to ensure appropriate treatment. Reducing these delays requires a stronger link between laboratory and clinic. New diagnostics and drugs are critical, but if they do not connect into a patient-centered model of care—the right diagnostic or drug, for the right patient, at the right time—they will have limited impact.

This grant for connecting multiple devices, combined with the resulting information flow and interpretation, addresses these delays by connecting diagnostics, harnessing their data, and moving that data in real time to actors in the health system.  Additionally, we seek to reduce time to identify and notify patients and clinicians and reduce the pretreatment Loss to Follow-up (LTFU) by confirming that all positive diagnoses are linked to appropriate treatment.

Successful Applicant will be Awarded:

  • Connection of 1 GeneXpert POC TB diagnostic instrument and up to two central laboratory DR TB diagnostic tests (ie MGIT, LPA) to Aspect. The central laboratory tests/devices will be limited to one central or national level laboratory.

  • Deployment of a mobile application to capture smear microscopy results and move them to Aspect.

  • Connection between Aspect and the currently used DR TB case management system.

  • Site visits by SystemOne staff (to be conducted within first 90 days of the grant).

  • Capacity building during site visits.

  • Data, SMS, and other running costs and remote support for one year.

  • The successful awardee will be invited to nominate 1 or 2 individuals to co-author a paper on the results of this initiative with SystemOne.

Eligibility for Award

  • Ministries of Health must submit an application by April 30, 2019 (see below for application instructions).

  • The successful awardee will need to provide a Ministry of Health-appointed point of contact to manage the project and provide all local logistical support and local travel costs for the SystemOne engineers. That person will remain the point of contact during the following 9 additional months of connectivity. Meals, lodging, incidentals and international travel costs for SystemOne engineers will be covered by SystemOne.

SystemOne, CDC and ASLM Electronic Proficiency Testing Platform (ePT) Now Used in over 900 Laboratories & Testing Sites in 24 Countries

New applications and connectivity reduces process from 4-6 week to near realtime

Springfield, MA and Johannesburg, South Africa – January 10, 2019 -  SystemOne announces that its enhanced Electronic Proficiency Testing Platform (ePT), built in collaboration with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC - Atlanta, USA) and the African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) to support the global Dried Tube Specimen (DTS) program offered by the CDC is now being used in 24 countries and 900 testing sites.  

SystemOne was engaged, through the ASLM, to expand the existing ePT platform which provided an online mechanism for the submission of HIV results. The expansion adds the ability to test TB samples, as well as automated analysis and reporting of the CDC DTS samples. The current evaluation process for the DTS program took around 4-6 weeks to complete, via a manual process.

Currently, the CDC provides DTS TB samples to laboratories around the world for proficiency testing on the GeneXpert. SystemOne’s ePT platform automates both the analysis and reporting process. In addition to the software platform and connectivity, SystemOne has developed a mobile application to allow participants to be notified of new panels, submit their results and access results in an intuitive, user-friendly manner. The initial pilot for the extended ePT platform and the mobile application took place in Botswana, Nigeria and Namibia.

“This work was a natural fit given our experience with connectivity for disease intelligence and rapid detection and response, combined with our history of working with GeneXperts in over 40 countries,” said Chris Macek, CEO, SystemOne. “When data can move faster than disease, humanity wins. Making sure ePT data move quickly and accurately is important to ensuring quality as complex diagnostic devices get deployed worldwide.”

About SystemOne:

Founded in Massachusetts in 2012, SystemOne focuses on producing solutions for disease surveillance and response. SystemOne has offices in Springfield, MA and Johannesburg, South Africa. The company’s new disease intelligence software, Aspect®, addresses numerous infectious diseases including Zika, Ebola, HIV, Malaria, Hepatitis C and more on a host of diagnostic devices.

SystemOne Launches RDT Digital Integration for Aspect Platform

First Commercial, Scalable Solution Works With Any RDT

Springfield, MA and Johannesburg, South Africa – August 14, 2018 - SystemOne, the leader in global disease intelligence for rapid detection and response, has announced the integration of off-the-shelf rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) into the Aspect® platform. Although millions of RDTs are used worldwide for the detection of HIV, Malaria, and Influenza, there are few tools available to collect, aggregate, and validate RDT results in the field.

Because of recent pressure to move RDTs into self-testing by people at home, the global health community has sought a way to collect data, both to connect individual patients for follow-up testing and counseling, and to aggregate the data to study patterns of disease. Although academic groups have experimented with methods for reading RDT results and collecting patient data, none have found widespread use.

Working with the HSTAR Programme at University of the Witwatersrand Reproductive Health and HIV Institute (Wits RHI) and supported by funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), SystemOne developed its approach to be flexible, scalable, and sustainable.

By integrating RDT data into the Aspect platform, the data can be accessed within minutes by the ministry of health, research team, and healthcare providers anywhere in the world. Because Aspect already integrates HIV viral load data, the solution now makes it possible to link screening tests to confirmatory tests and follow-up testing during treatment.

For the first roll-out of the functionality, SystemOne created a mobile-phone application that collects demographic data about the patient, offers guidance for performing a self-test using standard RDT, and allows the patient to take a picture of the completed test result.

The app asks for the patient’s interpretation of the test result. All of the data, including the picture, are uploaded to Aspect for review by healthcare workers.

Because Aspect is flexible enough to accept diagnostic data from any device, other app providers can produce their own apps to guide patients, collect data, and even automatically interpret results. For developers, integration with Aspect is as simple as making a single call to Aspect, securely delivering clinical and demographic data.

SystemOne products are used to collect, analyze, and deliver diagnostic data from any diagnostic device for diseases such as TB, HIV, Hepatitis, Ebola, and Zika. “We are especially excited to offer integration with RDTs,” says Aaron Oppenheimer, SystemOne VP of Product Design. “They are widespread and inexpensive, but the simplicity can come with a cost, since there has been no scalable way to gather the data. With this extension of the Aspect platform, healthcare programs can finally see what’s happening in the field, in real time.”

SystemOne Launches Action Dashboard for Laboratory and Treatment Management, Designed in Partnership with FIND

Provides Actionable Insights and Checklist-style Controls for Global Health Labs

Springfield, MA and Johannesburg, South Africa – July 30, 2018 - SystemOne, the leader in global disease intelligence for rapid detection and response, has launched a new approach for helping manage laboratories in global health settings. The “Action Dashboard” brings together a laboratory’s testing data and operational information in one place, giving laboratory managers at the local and regional levels unprecedented insights into laboratory operations, combined with user-friendly alerts about operational issues, such as devices in need of service, low stock levels, or communication issues.

Designed in partnership with the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND), the first Action Dashboard deployment is in Myanmar, which has been using GxAlert, SystemOne’s flagship platform for diagnostics connectivity, since 2014. The Action Dashboard represents a new level of features built on SystemOne’s next-generation platform, Aspect, with flexible, secure data management and advanced analyses in a simple, easy-to-read and easy-to-use form.

“The Action Dashboard gives labs a straightforward list of issues and actions needed, from device maintenance to data collection, and lets regional officers see what’s happening in every laboratory. It supports configurable testing targets to allow a program to plan and track its coverage for different patient populations,” said Aaron Oppenheimer, VP of Product Design, SystemOne. “Working with FIND staff, and informed by members of the Clinton Health Access Initiative as well as the Myanmar National Tuberculosis Program helped us create the ideal tool for their environment.”

“FIND is committed to optimizing the use of diagnostic data to improve patient outcomes," said Catharina Boehme, CEO, FIND. "In Myanmar, we were able to combine the expertise of SystemOne with our knowledge of the issues faced by labs every day, to develop the Action Dashboard. The Action Dashboard improves decision making by providing both clinical and operational data to give a picture of how a disease management program is working, in real time.

SystemOne products are used to collect, analyze, and deliver diagnostic data from any diagnostic device for diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV, hepatitis, Ebola, and Zika. “Our focus is on flexibility,” said Oppenheimer. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so we have built our platform to be easily configurable to fit the needs of Ministries and implementing organizations working in any disease, in any country. We are already working to extend the Action Dashboard.”
