Enterprise Health Security Center Awarded for Innovative Use of Technology to Manage and Mitigate Health Risks of a Global Workforce
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (June 22, 2017) Digital solutions provider Infostretch announced that a digital health portal developed for International SOS, the world’s leading medical and travel security risk services company, has received industry recognition for technology innovation. The Enterprise Health Security Center was honored with the ‘Most Innovative Use of Technology in Global Mobility – Assignee Management Award’ from the Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) at the 2017 FEM Americas Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards (EMMAs).
International SOS delivers the Enterprise Health Security Center (EHSC) as part of their global health assistance platform to help organizations mitigate health risks and provide advice to the mobile workforce during disease outbreaks and other health incidents. The digital health portal provides access to the latest medical content and communications, as well as pandemic incident plans and procedures, to enable managers to effectively respond to emerging health threats.
“Congratulations to International SOS for this well-deserved industry recognition, confirming the importance of the potentially life-saving benefits of their revolutionary digital health risk management portal,” said Rutesh Shah, Infostretch Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. “Infostretch was pleased to contribute our extensive expertise in Agile development methodologies to incorporate continuous feedback and QA into the development process, avoiding development pitfalls while speeding time-to-market.”
“Our clients rely on us for expert advice, quality tactical support and reliable access to thousands of medical professionals worldwide. The Enterprise Health Security Center is essential to guide them in taking appropriate action to mitigate health risks and dangerous scenarios as they care for their most valuable resources, the human ones,” said Dr. Myles Druckman, Senior Vice-President and Regional Medical Director for International SOS. “Infostretch’s processes were key to improving the overall development lifecycle, while facilitating collaboration among subject matter experts, internal stakeholders and geographically distributed teams, to deliver a robust and reliable digital health portal for our clients.”
The web-based Enterprise Health Security Center, which can be accessed via laptop, tablet or iPad, includes a customizable dashboard that delivers a worldwide view of an organization’s operations in relation to local, regional and global health threats. Infostretch assisted with development of the digital health portal using Iterative Development, an agile development methodology that incorporates multiple iterations and constant user feedback to meet continuously evolving project requirements and deliver quality results.
According to the FEM Americas EMMA judges, the Enterprise Health Security Center “addresses a thankfully infrequent but certainly acute need. When a crisis arises, software like this from International SOS is needed.”
