Find missing patients and hotspots

Identify, monitor and evaluate

Predict and prevent future incidents

Deploy country resources in effective way

Mapping - Epidemic Control - Diagnostics

Data science for real-world problems

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

Our objective is to quantify risks, find patients and improve pathway to care through the use of smart and innovative solutions using real-world context and evidence. We use deep learning models and spatially enabled technologies to identify areas & communities at risk, assist in screening, 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

  • Effective use of country resources

For multiple stakeholders

Epcon's generic engine allows to be deployed in various use cases. From pure data analytics, predictive modelling and risk quantification to monitoring patient adherence and wellbeing. All contribute to an improved patient pathway to care and an effective use of resources. Find out more how we can help your organisation.

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!
