Reston, April 7, 2020 – From supporting front-line response agencies to enabling the procurement of critical medical supplies to supporting the military’s urgent and critical medical response activities, Amyx’s employees are making a difference in the global effort to maintain the rapidly spreading Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and its effects.
Since January 2020, Amyx has been providing daily operational support to the United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) and its partners by developing real-time status of COVID-19 impacts to the Government’s supply chain operations. Using various visualization tools and an internal SharePoint instance, Amyx is enabling situational awareness and collaboration for the Operational Planning Team, a joint group of combatant commands and air and sea Service components.
Amyx Geographic Information System (GIS) developers are building a Common Operating Picture (COP) through customized dashboards for critical COVID-19 response activities including embedded data from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Transportation (DOT), Johns Hopkins, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and governmental agencies.
Amyx is also actively helping the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) respond to urgent requests for ventilators and associated accessory items. Working with the private sector, DoD and other federal agencies, Amyx has configured DLA web applications and data extracts to provide improved visibility into sources of supply and pricing data for ordering urgently needed medical assets. These assets include medical, surgical and pharmaceutical supplies that are being used by the U.S. Navy Hospital Ships Mercy and Comfort.
In support of the Defense Health Agency (DHA) and Military Health System (MHS), Amyx is providing expedited acquisition support to executing contracts and procurements to enable DoD’s COVID-19 response operations. The Amyx Support Agreements Team assisted in the creation of Memorandums of Agreement with academic and DoD partners for the development and operation of forecasting models for producing accurate weekly, probabilistic forecasts of COVID-19 for Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs).
Additionally, Amyx has helped to rapidly develop and coordinate multi-million dollar financial agreements with U.S. Government health organizations to store, manage, maintain and transport medical and surgical supplies and related Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in support of the DoD Pandemic Influenza Stockpile Program.
“The entire Amyx team is committed to partnering with federal, civilian and defense agencies as we grapple with this crisis. I’m proud of each Amyx employee and their hard work and tremendous dedication,” said Satya Akula, President and CEO of Amyx, Inc. He continued by saying, “these are just a few instances of the support that we are delivering – we’re also providing cybersecurity and information services, data analytics and decision support tools, as well as technical and professional services subject matter experts in a coordinated effort to respond to and manage the impacts of the pandemic.”
