COVID-19 Mortality Incident Tracker (COMIT)
A Software as a Service (SaaS) offering for Medical Examiners (MEs), Forensic Pathologists, Doctors and Medico-Legal Investigators
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken the world by storm. The virus is spreading its tentacles across the world. Calamities such as the COVID-19 pose multiple challenges to the Governments and the Healthcare Infrastructure. Medical Examiners (MEs), Doctors, Medico-Legal Investigators and Forensic Pathologists communities play a critical role in managing the crisis. But, they can operate seamlessly only with relevant tools and technologies that give them the leverage to navigate the crisis.
Given this backdrop, Nihilent has developed the COVID-19 Mortality Incident Tracker (COMIT), a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering to help this community across the world to tackle the investigation of deaths arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. COMIT is a very functional solution, a manifestation of Nihilent’s almost two decades of experience in providing various solutions for the medical investigation community. Nihilent has developed software applications for the ME’s office which are operational in New York City and the State of New Jersey and currently supporting this application in New Jersey.
Take the case of the ME’s in the United States, who comes under the ambit of Department of Health, and Nihilent over the last decade has worked closely with the Chief Medical Examiners (OCME) offices in the United States and helped with custom workflow applications for death investigations thereby enabling the automation of the operations of the Medical Examiners’ office.
Empowering Medical Investigators with COMIT
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the medical investigators are getting actively involved in suspected but unconfirmed deaths as well as unattended deaths from the virus outbreak. The unabated speed of this outbreak has stressed the healthcare systems across the world and the MEs / Doctors / Forensic Pathologists workload is going up significantly.
COMIT offers a compelling value proposition for countries in the grip of this unprecedented human tragedy. The main advantage of the user-friendly COMIT offering is that it helps keep a record of the fatality cases efficiently which can be accessed easily. This cloud-based solution comes with very strong levels of security owing to the sensitive nature of the information and data. The solution will ensure seamless processing of information and safe preservation for future study of the disease, factors that aggravate it and measures that can be taken to fight COVID-19 and similar outbreaks in the future.
