Smart Diagnostics Ecosystem for COVID-19 Disease Management

A smart diagnostics ecosystem has been established that links the award winning programmable medical microdevice technology to cloud-based databases alongside clinically validated decision support tools that are optimized for use in Federally Qualified Health Centers. These premarket capabilities through this HHS design-a-thon effort are now being linked to build digital solutions for data capture, harmonization, and reporting from COVID-19 diagnostic tests using both laboratory and...

Smart Diagnostics Ecosystem for COVID-19 Disease Management

COVID-19 has had a severe and disruptive impact on nearly every segment of our society, but has had a disproportionate impact on the underserved and impoverished. As we enter the second wave of COVID-19, we can take advantage of real-time patient and community level information to drive improved diagnostic testing accuracy and severity information using point-of-care diagnostic tools with embedded artificial intelligence and cloud connected databases. We have assembled a world class team of...

Bio I am a multi-disciplinary bioengineer and machine learning scientist dedicated to the commercialization of point-of-care diagnostics and artificial intelligence technologies for improving clinical decision making, establishing efficient and automated clinical workflows, and increasing access to quality health care. Since 2012, I have been developing integrated point-of-care instruments and clinical decision support tools, resulting in over 25 publications and patents, 2 Business Plan Competition awards, XPRIZE Finalist (Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE) two years in a row, and startup companies working to commercialize the technology. In the area of point-of-care in vitro diagnostics, I founded a company that is commercializing an image-based reader for a variety of lateral flow immunoassay tests for COVID-19 antigen, influenza A/B, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and Lyme disease.
