Technological development never stands still - nor do we at Systematic. Our advanced solutions are based on the latest technology, and we are constantly working to improve our processes and think ahead in order to deliver the most innovative and efficient solutions to our customers - now and in the future.
The system landscape of a Healthcare enterprise is often comprised of many different systems from multiple vendors to cover the complexity and variety of processes and workflows that need to be supported by IT. The maturity of integration standards, e.g. HL7 FHIR, and technologies such as microservices serves as enablers of new ways to create and govern Healthcare enterprise architectures.
We have embraced this new way of thinking and built an open ecosystem where a solid foundation of microservices – ensuring data integrity and coherence – gives customers the freedom to grow their enterprise in a controlled environment.
Cloud Computing Technology
Cloud computing technology is revolutionising how C2 capabilities are delivered to commanders across the battlespace. Whether you are implementing cloud technology on-premise or use a third-party service provider, cloud technology brings on-demand scaling, improved availability and security, and cost optimisation. The technology also promises the ability for commanders operating at lower echelons to have access to advanced capabilities that are not typically organic to their formation.
On-demand scaling enables compute-heavy analysis of vast amounts of diverse data for improved decision support, regardless of the data’s origin.
At Systematic we have also leveraged cloud technology for e-learning applications and are committed to introducing the benefits of the cloud to SitaWare operators.
Smart technologies are connecting the world around us and quickly transforming how patients are diagnosed, monitored, treated, and even consume healthcare services. Data from different types of wearable or stationary sensors, cameras, or other smart technologies will be increasingly important to prevent disease, detect early signs of illness, or monitor patients in hospitals or their own homes. Even wearable consumer devices are becoming increasingly more accurate – to the point, where the ECG monitor in a smartwatch could prevent serious illness.
We already built a strong Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform harnessing the strengths of Real-Time Location Tracking (RTLS) of objects, e.g. devices, beds, or even people. We are now exploring a range of possibilities in the realm of smart technologies.
With the rise of new technologies enabling automated data capture combined with the amount of data recorded in inpatient and citizen records as well as specialty healthcare systems the amount of data is growing rapidly each day but the utilization rate of data can still be improved. In order for data to become useful information that can be used to optimize patient pathways and prevent, diagnose or treat serious illness the data silos must be broken down.
We want to ensure that data is utilized to assist care providers in providing premium quality healthcare services by ensuring that our products are built on international standards with an open architecture. This enables the application of state-of-the-art technologies to be applied on data, e.g., Knowledge Graphs can be used for context-based patient summary information to assist care providers getting a quick overview.
Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
AI is a transformative technology on the modern battlefield and is bringing a step change in capabilities to all domains. Its ability to handle vast volumes of complex data will streamline and speed up decision-making processes, acting as a force multiplier for commanders. Systematic is exploring the application of AI across the SitaWare suite and we have already introduced various aspects in our software, ranging from ourAI Assisted Toolbox that is designed to streamline work processes, to the application of machine learning for anomaly detection in the maritime domain.
We are exploring a range of advanced uses for AI, including for decision-support tools – such as route planning and analysis – and the ability to analyse multi-source intelligence reports through natural language understanding.
New technologies that create efficient, scalable, and secure operation of complex IT systems have gained a foothold in other markets and in our everyday lives over the past few years. Examples of this are Netflix, Google, and Amazon, which have taken cloud technology a step further and made it possible to build cloud functionalities into the IT infrastructure - regardless of provider.
At Systematic, we want to support the efficient, secure, and scalable operation of critical healthcare applications through the use of container-based cloud and technology analytics platforms using Kubernetes. We call this platform Synergy. In addition, we have also ensured that our products are accredited to run safely on national health networks such as SWAN, N3, and DK-SDN.
Working as a healthcare professional is demanding, hectic and always centered on the patient or citizen. This means that staff must be able to move around and take their IT solutions with them wherever they go. Mobile devices with high-resolution screens and lots of power create new opportunities for users to interact with their IT solutions.
At Systematic, we want to support the healthcare professionals so that they can work efficiently with administrative tasks and thus have more time for patients and citizens. One of the core principles of our software design is to think about mobile access from the start to ensure users a high degree of flexibility. We utilize the power of modern mobile devices and draw on new technologies such as edge computing when we create high-performance applications. At the same time, our solutions must work independently of access to the network.
Mesh radio networks provide militaries with resilience in their communications infrastructure and ensure that there is no single point of failure, with every node dynamically serving as a router for every other node.
Effectively managing the flow of large amounts of data across these networks is a key enabler for command-and-control on the modern battlefield. The sheer volume of data can overwhelm networks and it is here that SitaWare Tactical Communication protocols give commanders an operational advantage.
STC automatically manages all the complexities of data compression, bandwidth management, synchronization, connectivity and routing. This enables commanders at the tactical edge to effortlessly share vital battle information.
We are looking into a future that is gradually becoming more and more digital. A future where more and more of our personal and health data is being recorded, stored, and used across IT systems. Our health information has become both the most valuable and the most sensitive data - and it must be protected at all costs.
At Systematic, it is crucial that our software is both resistant and secure. We, therefore, use the latest technology for code analysis to ensure that our software can withstand cyber threats. At the same time, GDPR-based core concepts such as privacy by design and privacy by default are always included in our development projects and are built into both our code and our processes. This means that both healthcare professionals, patients, citizens, and relatives can confidently trust our solutions.
