Alert and Response

Health crises and events that could affect the health of a large number of people require an appropriate response within a very short time frame. They are generally anticipated by a monitoring and alert system. It identifies the occurrence of major epidemics or pandemics, crises linked to contaminated medicines or vaccines, climatic or meteorological events, consequences of accidents, etc.

Whether it concerns a technical or human deployment, this response requires key skills: expertise, adaptability to difficult terrain and reactivity.

The Epiconcept offer

Epiconcept provides experienced human resources (epidemiologists, data managers, computer scientists) and dedicated IT tools to field workers in order to adress alert and response to health crises. Here are a few examples of our field of experience:

  • Creation of alert tools, business dashboards and IT solutions for the detection and management of health alerts.
