BlueDot and ASEAN: Testimonial
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region has faced significant health challenges. The ongoing collaboration between the ASEAN Biodiaspora Virtual Center (ASEAN BVC) and BlueDot has been transformative. In this testimonial, we look at BlueDot’s impact within ASEAN BVC, examining the challenges, solutions, and benefits for the region.
The Challenge: Maintaining Public Trust in Health Systems
The primary challenges faced by ASEAN BVC were maintaining public trust in healthcare systems and government institutions. This issue was compounded by the evolving landscape of infectious diseases. There was an urgent need for precise, timely information. This included analysis on disease impact, severity, transmission rates, population vulnerability, and healthcare resource availability. While research and manual efforts could provide accurate data, often times this was at odds with how quickly the information could be disseminated and realized. There needed to be a better way to gather, assess, analyze, and distribute critical healthcare information.
The ASEAN Biodiaspora Virtual Center collaborated with BlueDot. Together, they developed a credible and trustworthy solution. It encompassed essential data analytics and reporting capabilities. The platform provided key insights into disease patterns and their potential impacts. These insights were critical for early warnings about emerging infectious diseases, especially those with pandemic potential.
“BlueDot has been a quick and reliable source of data, and it has given us credibility as an epidemic intelligence hub within ASEAN region.” – Dr. Socorro Lupisan, Program Manager at ASEAN BVC
