NEW DELHI: Conduent Incorporated, a business process services and solutions company, on Tuesday announced the availability of a new software module for its disease surveillance and outbreak management platform, Maven, configured to securely track, manage and report on cases of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Maven is a software platform currently used by approximately 40 organizations — primarily U.S. public health agencies, as well as international clients — to manage cases of more than 90 communicable diseases, according to a release. Starting Tuesday, organizations can gain access to Conduent’s new module to track COVID-19.

The platform is specifically designed to support case management, information integration and coordination among epidemiologists, medical professionals and health departments.

Because of its flexible design, Maven users can also customize the platform on their own to track diseases most prevalent in specific geographies or communities. Maven can assist with critical efforts at local levels to monitor not just the individual cases of the disease, but also citizens whom may be at risk of exposure.

The Maven platform supports agencies with reporting requirements to authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and integrates with geocoding tools and services to create a geographic visualization of outbreak areas and case clusters.

“Agencies and other organizations can quickly take advantage of Maven’s capabilities to assist with tracking and help in the fight against COVID-19,” said Mark Brewer, president, global public sector solutions, Conduent.

“The platform has shown to be an essential tool for public health, especially when health agencies require more timely and accurate analytical tools for collaboration — a critical part of preventing the spread of highly contagious diseases,” he added.
