Combat COVID - 19 with Snark Health’s Rapid Information Sharing
Snark Health, one of the newest additions to the Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator, is working on their blockchain-enabled health platform to rapidly share information related to COVID-19.
The team shared their progress and motives behind their current work with us. Read about what they are doing below:
“The global response to the COVID-19 pandemic is at a critical point and requires unprecedented coordination. We are building a framework for data-driven discussions and shared learnings to help people have a greater impact at their respective local, state, national level in collaboration with their organizations and governmental agencies. Our efforts are aimed at enabling more rapid dissemination of information to improve patient outcomes. Our goal is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned to support the people and organizations that are tasked with problem solving at the local level across the globe. There remain many unanswered questions in regards to the clinical, operational and financial aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the process of answering these critical questions, we are building a new framework while simultaneously laying the foundation for global triage support, improved access to health care services and clinical research.
The time to act is now to facilitate the rapid dissemination of information to improve patient outcomes. If you’re interested in helping us grow and respond to the rapidly evolving pandemic, please reach out to Dr. Hank Selke: firstname.lastname@example.org; (317) 417-5512. Thanks.”
