ATLAS today announced plans to exhibit at the 14 World Congress on Public Health, to be held February 11–15, 2015 at Science City, Kolkata, India, Booth A21-A22.
The Company will be exhibiting its WorldCaresuite of powerful software applications including Disease Surveillance, Public Health Reporting, and Case Manager solutions that support and enhance public health practices and empower public health and private providers with actionable information.
WorldCare Disease Surveillance supports implementation of effective strategies for community health with automated receipt of disease incident reports from hospitals and laboratories. Public health workers can access disease surveillance and outbreak management tools which include contact, cluster and index case linking along with incident alerts, task lists and assignments for thorough follow-up. WorldCare Case Manager integrates with other systems to enable data sharing with other departments or community partners to effectively manage cases of infectious and chronic diseases. Community health is enhanced as a result of comprehensive care coordination and tracking of referrals and transitions.
Rajiv Pujara, Managing Director of Atlas Healthcare’s Asia Pacific operations, stated, “With Asian destinations fast emerging as the new hubs of global travel and business, it is appropriate that the World Federation on Public Health has selected India as the site of the World Congress this year. Rapid globalization is playing a significant role in the spread of infectious diseases across national and geographical boundaries. The need for countries to discuss and share best practices in our collective fight against killer diseases is more urgent than ever.” He adds, “Tools and technologies that enable effective and timely management of data and information will play a key role in our response to outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics.”
Mark Marostica, ATLAS Vice President of Global Business Development stated, “Today’s global economy facilitates the rapid spread of deadly infectious pathogens, such as Ebola, quickly transforming a local outbreak into a potential pandemic. At the same time, on a daily basis chronic diseases undermine the quality of life of millions, resulting in massive personal and societal costs. Our WorldCare Disease Surveillance and Outbreak Management application provides vital actionable intelligence to healthcare providers allowing them to respond to outbreaks quickly and efficiently, to manage chronic diseases and to a promote and protect the health of the communities they serve.”
