Charles River Analytics Inc, developer of intelligent systems solutions, and Dr. April Young of the University of Kentucky, will present SPIDER, a network research and contact tracing tool at the American Public Health Association’s annual meeting. The event will take place from November 4-8, 2017, at the Georgia World Congress Center and the Omni Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, GA. The topic of this year’s meeting is “Creating the Healthiest Nation: Climate Changes Health.”
SPIDER is a semi-automated, market-leading outbreak management tool for understanding disease networks. The tool helps health professionals and researchers on the front lines of communicable disease prevention and containment.
SPIDER is one Charles River’s healthcare support and training efforts, which includes medical skills training, therapy and decision-support tools, and sensor and sensing technologies. Charles River has also developed the TMT tourniquet training system, the PROMPTER training tool to improve battlefield first-aid skills, and the STAT tablet-based training system that presents a virtual patient in multiple trauma scenarios for efficient and effective learning, rehearsal, and assessment.
