Medivizor is still running along and growing! And the team and I continue to lead it forward.
However, as we all know, Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic is a huge issue affecting the entire world. Besides avoiding getting ill, we need to be able to eventually get back to normal, and technology can help both prevent/arrest the spread of the pandemic, and allow us to return to normal sooner rather than later.
Therefore, I’m proud to be a member of a talented and experienced team that has developed a live digital public health solution that could dramatically curtail this epidemic, support most ecosystem stakeholders, and reassure the general public, allowing faster recovery and return to day-to-day life. Track Virus is a platform, composed of an app and web services backend, already widely used (in Israel), used and endorsed by United Hatzalah (a leading NGO), and experiencing exponential growth.
Importantly, the solution is privacy-preserving so it can be deployed also in liberal democracies. Sample press coverage here and here (and many more in Hebrew and other languages).
We want to make this available to other countries PRONTO while also expanding its use domestically. We are already in touch with numerous countries and government authorities at this time. To get widespread use and maximum impact, our preferred approach is to “start from the top”, and be adopted and recommended on national/governmental level (could be federal, state, or large city) for their emergency response efforts. Any help getting to the decision-makers in these positions is appreciated.
Let me know if you can think of any way to help us… (sooner=better 🙂
In the meantime, stay safe and socially isolated (in real life, but not virtually).
