Nationwide efforts to mitigate the outbreak have been met with communication and technological
setbacks, stemming from outdated data retrieval and application practices.
This is evidenced through the cumbersome testing methods and inefficient data collection processes
currently in use, as described by the CDC.
A critical necessity for a forward triage, scalable, interoperable data analysis and application
tool capable of early identification, self-monitoring, and triage categorization remains a priority
in the wake of this pandemic.
The goal is to deliver the right level of care to the right patient at the right time
known and trusted sensor, laboratory and test data along with easy-to-use persistent monitoring
telehealth technology to shorten the interval between symptom onset and early differentiation
detection between COVID-19 and Influenza. This methodology will improve health outcomes,
public safety and keep non-COVID-19 infected patients out of the hospital.
“The first and most immediate concern when responding to Public Health Emergencies
is to mobilize
resources and knowledge in a logical, efficient and rapid manner. In order to
response to Public Health Emergencies, it is vital that data be shared and made available as
quickly as possible, with as few access limitations as possible.”
