GERMWATCH: MOBILE APPLICATION TO HELP PHYSICIANS TRACK AND TREAT INFECTIOUS DISEASE

Hospitals rely on internal systems to monitor the incidence of infectious diseases and antibiotic susceptibilities. These monitoring systems fail to track and compile information across multiple organizations, which leaves significant gaps in disease reporting.

GermWatch collects and disseminates disease trends for a given geographic area to better inform clinicians, healthcare facilities, and patients of current risks. The system builds a disease profile that provides incidence levels, disease forecasting, and treatment information. This information can be accessed in real-time using the GermWatch website and mobile application, or can be disseminated via email. GermWatch helps providers recognize common diseases, while increasing diagnostic accuracy and treatment efficacy.
