Aspect mobile cuts weeks of delay to a few minutes.
Report Results to Remote Clinics Rapidly, and Accurately
When information moves faster than a disease, everyone wins. Eliminate the delays of sending test results to remote clinics, and mitigate the loss of critical patient results. Aspect mobile fully automates delivery, receipt, and acknowledgment, telling you where your results are and when they have been received. The Aspect app delivers test results immediately from lab to clinic, extending the reach of laboratory diagnostic testing to the point-of-care.
As part of the SystemOne Aspect platform, the Aspect app gives access to a test result as it is available, using robust, custom infrastructure and proven data security, easily displayed on Android tablets or phones.
Real-World Example: Aspect mobile in Malawi
In Malawi, HIV Viral Load and Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) data pilot delivered results automatically from central laboratories to rural clinics throughout the country. At the lab, the Abbott m2000 RealTime System is the key instrument for performing the tests. These devices were connected to the Aspect network to deliver test results and patient demographics to a secure in-country server.
Back at the referring clinic, the Aspect app downloaded these results and presented them to the clinic staff so they could take immediate action. Results were shown using a simple interface on the rechargeable tablets that were located where the clinic staff needed them. A similar interface is under development for Android phones.
In addition to rapidly moving results, Aspect can generate reports that show the distribution of test results, patient demographics, test volumes, and more – automatically. Through use of Reporter, the time-to-result in Malawi was limited only by sample transport speed to the central labs. The test results traveled back to the clinics in real time.
Aspect's mobile app has been shown to cut result turnaround time by 95% and offer significant improvements in accuracy and reduction of result losses in this landscape. Please contact us to learn more about our pilot in Malawi.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Aspect mobile enables users to register samples upon collection.
- The samples are assigned a unique sample ID which can be generated by the app or use an existing sample ID (e.g. preprinted on a specimen request form).
- Once registered, the samples can be tracked (pickup, delivery at lab, etc).
- When a result comes in with a matching sample ID, Aspect automatically sends the result to the app that registered the sample (or another user authorized at that clinic).
Aspect mobile provides both visual and real-time reporting and alert components to help healthcare workers manage and act upon diagnostic results.
- Ability to transfer results to other clinics
- Icons reflecting the type of test run
- Patient ID easily searchable
- Every result shows whether it requires follow-up and if the follow-up has been confirmed
- Simple clinical response inputs – treatment initiation date and treatment protocol
- Healthcare workers can comment to explain loss to follow-up
Supervisors can manage healthcare workers' use of the app
Weekly reports can be automatically emailed to supervisors to monitor app users in their local districts
App users can track patients and confirm patients on treatment in real-time
As part of the Aspect platform, Aspect mobile can receive any results in Aspect, including but not limited to GeneXpert, MGIT, TrueLab, Abbott m2000 and others, allowing diagnostic result tracking in real-time for TB, HIV, HCV, Ebola, Zika etc.
Aspect can send any information associated with a sample or test result to or from the mobile device, including related information from APIs or Webhooks of other systems, including e-TB Manager, DISA, Open MRS, DHIS2 and OpenLDR. [PM1]
Aspect mobile was designed to work in places with intermittent web access. It can run online or offline, enabling healthcare workers to continue to do their job whether connected to the Internet or not.
Typically the Ministry of Health owns the data.
Any language can be supported by the Aspect app. Users can select a language on the login page or the user profile page. The platform is currently available in English, French, Portuguese, and Russian. Any further translations can be made possible by the development team.
