Information technology (IT) services major Infosys has rolled out an automated data science platform for public health agencies.

Called the Infosys Health Insights Platform (IHIP), the platform is developed in collaboration with AWS, distributed NoSQL cloud database Couchbase and business intelligence platform Knowi. It will help health agencies aggregate, manage and analyse data from multiple sources and disparate formats. The announcement was made by Infosys Public Services, a US based subsidiary of the Bengaluru headquartered IT services company. 

The platform is a part of Infosys Cobalt’s portfolio of 14,000 cloud assets, according to a statement. 

IHIP will provide a single platform to generate insights and actionable intelligence, especially amid outbreaks such as the Covid-19. 

“Covid-19 has shown us the need for crucial data analytics capabilities and tools for government agencies. It has also exposed the various issues with the tools available to public health agencies around the world. IHIP will help agencies quickly build next-generation analytics and data science capabilities to turn their data into actions,” Eric Paternoster, president and CEO at Infosys Public Services, said. 

Separately, Swiss health technology company Mobile Health AG has signed on Infosys to launch its electronically patient reported outcomes (ePRO) platform, Consilium Care.

As part of the deal, Infosys will set up and manage cloud and infrastructure services and support, security and monitoring and platform management services for Mobile Health AG, said a statement issued by Infosys. 

Infosys will also jointly market the Consilium Care platform in the US as part of IHP.

Founded in 2014, Mobile Health AG provides a remote monitoring system for cancer patients undergoing treatment through the Consilium care platform. The Consilium Care app for patients allows them to record medication taken and symptoms as well as ease of contacting the treatment centre. For physicians, the platform provides visualisation of patient’s symptoms including history and severity for monitoring. 

As part of global deals, Infosys signed on Slovakia based process mining software company Minit for its cloud software services unit EdgeVerve. In September Infosys implemented its core banking solution Finacle at Prabhu Bank of Nepal.
