Analytical Informatics Announces Implementation of Mobile Ebola Monitoring System
Tuesday, March 31, 2015
Analytical Informatics announced that a mobile health monitoring system co-developed with partner Emocha Mobile Health has been implemented by the State of Maryland. The system uses a smart phone app to monitor travelers and healthcare workers who may have come into contact with the Ebola virus. The system leverages Analytical’s data aggregation and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) integration platform, AI Bridge, which will be used to integrate mobile data with other clinical information systems.
Emocha Mobile Health has implemented its Ebola Symptoms Monitoring smartphone and web application for use by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH). After a one-month pilot phase, the system is now being used to monitor individuals who have returned from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa. Public health officials will use the app to conduct active and direct-active monitoring of people traveling from affected west-African countries, including certain health care workers, for 21-days, as per CDC guidelines.
