Northrop Grumman Highlights Public Health Disease Surveillance System at HIMSS

February 7, 2008 - Northrop Grumman will demonstrate its Integrated Public Health Disease Surveillance System - Global Disease Surveillance Platform (GDSP) and its Clinical Research Information eXchange (CRIX) at HIMSS 2008 in Orlando.

The GDSP platform seeks to reduce the life-threatening effects of diseases such as a pandemic influenza by providing a platform for the rapid communication of information across national and global organizations.

Northrop Grumman will demonstrate its identity management solution for the CRIX Clinical Research data exchange portal. In addition to increasing the efficiency of clinical work processes, lowering operational costs, reducing development expenses, and speeding and broadening access to information, the company says the CRIX portal will enable the standardization and electronic transfer of data that will speed the development and approval process of clinical trials.

The company will also highlight its ImmPort (BISC) and BioHealthBase (BRC) systems to enhance the scientific discovery process through data integration and novel cross-platform analysis approaches.
