Health And Biosciences

Delivering Solutions For A Healthy And Safe World

We’re a purpose-designed group of experts, technology, and products prioritizing human health and safety. We also recognize that human health is connected to the health of animals and the environment. Through this One Health approach, we leverage existing capabilities to tackle known and emerging biological threats, chemical contaminants, or other hazards. We’re expanding knowledge to address gaps and anticipate priorities, and we’re delivering solutions in health and biosciences, biosecurity and biosurveillance, health information technology (IT)/analytics, and research support services. Our proven, best-in class resources and people are leading the charge for a healthy and safe world.

Biosecurity And Biosurveillance

The health of humans is closely connected to the health of animals and our shared environment. Through our range of services and capabilities, we incorporate the One Health approach with the goal of effectively managing risks posed by biological threats.

Our capabilities include developing, integrating, and deploying tools for data collection, analysis, and visualization. These provide for early warning, diagnosis/detection, situational awareness, and decision support. Our health and bioscience experts design and build containment labs domestically and internationally, including rapid, high-quality, sustainable modular design and assembly.

We Offer Services Covering The Full Spectrum Of Biosecurity And Biosurveillance, Including The Following:

  • Risk assessments to identify potential biosecurity threats and vulnerabilities
  • Ongoing surveillance and monitoring of potential biosecurity threats
  • Laboratory support for the detection, identification, and characterization of pathogens and other organisms of concern
  • Incident response and management in the event of a biosecurity incident
  • Training and education on biosecurity and biosurveillance best practices, as well as guidance on biosecurity incident response
  • Technical expertise on biosecurity and biosurveillance issues
  • Support with law and regulation compliance
  • Continuous monitoring of biosecurity and biosurveillance systems performance, gathering user feedback, and making improvements

Health IT/Analytics

Our experts have developed and deployed tools for data collection, analysis, modeling and simulation, and visualization. These tools support early warning, diagnosis/detection, situational awareness, and decision support for public health and medical emergencies and events. We leverage artificial intelligence (AI), software products, high-performance computing (HPC), machine learning (ML), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and other capabilities to meet customer needs.

We offer plug-and-play platforms that provide comprehensive health surveillance, biometric-based clinical trial enrollment, and compliance monitoring programs. Additionally, our experts integrate disparate technologies and services into secure, cloud-based platforms, providing custom digital solutions for customers.

Our suite of products includes the Javelin Line of Mobile Biometric Collection Kits, a revolutionary, next-generation approach to biometrics. The product line combines the world’s leading smartphone devices with technology’s most proven and advanced multimodal biometrics and forensics capabilities. The mobile biometric collection kits provide fingerprint, iris, and face biometric capabilities for applications from health and humanitarian aid to military and law enforcement.

We Offer A Range Of Health And Biosciences Services, Including The Following:

  • Systems integration of health IT – electronic health records (EHRs), laboratory information systems (LISs), public health surveillance systems
  • Secure health data management, including data entry, data validation, and data quality control
  • Data analytics
  • Reporting and visualization
  • Decision support tools, such as clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) and population health management systems (PHMSs)
  • Technical support
  • Training and education on health IT systems and health analytics, guidance on best practices for data management and analysis
  • Relevant law and regulation compliance
  • Continuous improvement of health IT and analytics systems
