Epi Locator

Epi Locator is a software application designed to help case investigation and contact tracing teams more easily find missing contact information for positive COVID-19 cases and their contacts, enabling public health teams to reach more individuals in less time. Epi Locator integrates with a case management system, enabling users to search data enrichment sources for missing contact information directly within the case management system. Users have reported that a tool like this (i.e., contact enrichment fully integrated into a case management system) is especially helpful in the context of a high-volume of cases, as seen during surges of COVID-19 cases.

Epi Locator is deployed in production for the New York State Department of Health and the New Jersey Department of Health. It is currently integrated with contact tracing systems built on CommCare from Dimagi, as well as the Thomson Reuters CLEAR API.

The development of Epi Locator is sponsored by Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies.

Usage

Anyone interested in studying the code should be able to download it and run the test suite. The software is being actively developed on MacOS and Linux.

Contributing

Epi Locator is open-source but not open-contribution. It was built for specific "clients", and it's being maintained for those "clients" only. Also, in order to keep Epi Locator in the public domain and ensure that the code does not become contaminated with proprietary or licensed content, the project does not accept pull requests or patches from unknown persons.
