Rapid database construction

Voozanoo is both the certified personal health data platform for our clients' web-based IT applications and the tool we use to create those solutions.  This system allows our project managers to rapidly create the great majority of the client’s application leaving just a small part for visual customisation and specialised functions to the developers. It also allows the client to get involved, if desired, in the development process through the use of the user-friendly editor and publishing tools via their web browser.

Designed for public health

Voozanoo started its life in 2002 as a solution for a public health database. Ever since then, we have been creating projects and building up the Voozanoo system with health and medical research database functions and methods. Thus, within Voozanoo you will find ways of approaching data management, data security, and data entry very much in line with the methods used in the health informatics industry. Since 2017, all new projects have been developed with the completely redesigned version 4 of Voozanoo.

200+ IT projects on Voozanoo

Over the years, our clients and partners have entrusted us with the creation of their IT systems. From Mongolia to Mali, Voozanoo servers are in place facilitating information collection, aggregation and analysis. Whether the server is set up within the IT infrastructure of the client or it is on our ASIP certified platform, our experience in a large variety of contexts has helped us anticipate issues in the planning stages of each successive project.

ASIP level data security

EpiConcept's Voozanoo-based IT systems originate from Information Security Management System (ISMS) practices that guaranty the availability, completeness, and the confidentiality of data to whom it is entrusted. Since 11 May 2012, EpiConcept has been a state-certified “Personal health data hosting provider” with the Voozanoo framework. The certification was granted by the ministry of health, after a substantiated recommendation by a CNIL certification committee. The technical requirements in terms of security, risk analysis, and an established Information Systems Security Policy are very similar to the ISO 27001 norm. (ASIP health agency)

Today we got word from Apple that the Voozanoo mobile app has been accepted for publication to their AppStore. If you have a Voozanoo project with EpiConcept, talk to your project director to discuss if the mobile application could be useful for your project.
