VirusIQ Screening Platform > Virtual Lab Module

The COVID-19 pandemic is a healthcare data goldrush at present which raises concerns as to the future unintended consequences of the sensitive health information that may be shared to address a temporary crisis. We recognise the need throughout the digital transformation to not lose sight of centuries of evolution of ethics and principles such as privacy, security, confidentiality when developing systems that may transform patient engagement.

VirusIQ is an inclusive digital to provide universal and equitable pandemic response. For the designathon we propose in this instance to work collaboratively with the HHS Protect, to develop a combined hardware-software solution for the computation and communication of laboratory test data via the remote VirusIQ screening platform.

The VirusIQ screening platform modules include; digital health identity & passport, symptom data collection, screening risk analytics, public Health and Education, telemedicine, virtual laboratory, contact tracing, US FDA Real-time data analytics 

We propose as part of our VLA module, to develop hardware that is able to capture, standardize and report data to the VirusIQ WATER software system. The WATER system will be developed to interface and set the design parameters for all devices to directly report data into HHS Protect.

There are some great ideas in this post! Excellent work team, but the necessity of developing hardware may make it difficult to scale this project in a timely manner.

Hi Sophia/Crowdicity, it looks like there's two duplicate entries for this team, so I didn't know which one to vote for. Can you merge the two? The team might get more points if they're merged. Here's a link to the other page:

Trying to understand if there are preconditions met by other software. (In general) 1. How to collect AOEs, from ordering provider/patient/specimen collector 2. Integrate into app/LIS or other information source for patient to be married to results of IVD test device/system 3. All transmitted to public health (ELR) 4. All transmitted to HHS (may be met by 3).

Will your approach support all 4 or only portions of above for "tracking lab results"? (Looks like the chip runs in parallel to some of these)

Looks like you support LIS based reporting of ELR in HL7 v2.51 (per the MU IG)? For patient performed results are they routed to the physician who is required to report via electronic Case Reporting (eCR) by law? How would your approach support LISs or labs that don't have API functionality?

Are LOINC, SNOMED CT and other codes systems supported at the point of origin or downstream as in your diagram to meet requirements?

How are CLIA testing requirements met in your system?

Curious more about the chip and how it would "automatically" collect patient performed test results like the recent Lucira EUA? How about for Antigen or Antibody card (like pregnancy tests). How does the chip read the result values and assign appropriate LOINC and SNOMED CT codes depending on the results/values for appropriate transmission to the provider and public health? How are AOEs and other patient provided info collected on the chip? How is the chip CLIA validated for use in laboratories/Point of Care testing scenarios as in the Lucira EUA?

Intriguing proposal!!
