Data science solutions for real-world problems

Underserved communities are often affected by epidemic outbreaks and face challenges of reaching all those in need.  
Individuals, often unaware of their disease, try to ignore it due to economic reality and stigma. 
Affected communities sometimes lack formal addressing and identification mechanisms, population groups migrate in function of work, weather or conflicts. For TB alone around 4 million patients are missed every year.
We don't know who they are and if at all they are being cared for.
At Epcon we understand the complex reality of the many parties involved and recognise the lack of appropriate funding ... we provide a set of practical and cost-effective tools to help find those missing patients, screen and enter those affected into the treatment program. We help direct limited resources for the most optimal setting, allowing care for all. 

Innovations for epidemic control

Identify, monitor, evaluate and predict

We help you learn from historical data, act against present settings and events and push intelligence to those who need!

Our objective is to find missing patients through the use of smart and innovative solutions. We use deep learning models and spatially enabled technologies to identify areas & communities at risk and find all presumed patients, assist in diagnoses, monitor and drive their well-being.

Computer Aided Diagnostics for TB

  • Chest X-ray abnormality detection

  • Triage of presumed patients

  • Cloud and on-premise screening

  • Mobile uploads

Epidemic Mapping

  • Study of disease in time and space

  • Identify cause-effect patterns and hidden relations

  • Identify hotspots for outreach campaigns

  • Risk quantification at population and individual level

Monitoring & Evaluation

  • Monitor communities and individuals at risk

  • Monitor patient journey

  • Real-time program steering

  • Continuous insights and recommendation

For multiple stakeholders

Epcon's generic engine allows to be deployed in various use cases. From pure data analytics, predictive models and risk quantification, to video surveillance, image processing and remote sensing. All contribute to an improved patient pathway to care and enable universal healthcare. Find out more how we can help your organisation and impact a patients wellbeing.

"Why Epcon"

With a multidisciplinary team of experts in GIS, Health and Data Science, and having its roots in South Africa, innovations to overcome the challenges in low resource settings and underserved communities are embedded in our DNA. When data is sparse, uncertain, complex and distributed, and its stakeholders need insights and understanding in remote areas, this is where Epcon starts to grow and creates value for those involved.

Use Cases

Our core technology has demonstrated the use of its bayesian reasoning models in different projects. Due to its generic model, we completed projects in epidemic mapping, predictive analysis and have developed innovative diagnostic tools.

We continue to innovate through collaborations with industry partners and allow for the use of our technology for social good.  Find out more!
