Empowering people to respond to health security threats through rapidly deployable digital health tools

Join Program

OVERVIEW

Digital health tools — digital countermeasures — can provide an important first line of defense to augment traditional medical countermeasures in the face of health security threats. Through this program, DRIVe is seeking simple, rapidly deployable, and equitably accessible digital health tools for diagnosis and risk assessment.

APPROACH

Develop novel digital technologies that accelerate the response to health security threats. Proposed solutions should increase access, reduce cost, or more rapidly disseminate medical countermeasures, such as diagnosis and risk assessment capabilities, by:

  • Capitalizing on broadly available and easily accessible digital platforms such as smartphones and web applications and/or
  • Combining novel analytic approaches, such as AI/ML, with broadly accessible data sources such as images, audio, sensors, or user data from smartphones/wearable devices; or other novel digital data sources.

Digital health tools include smartphone, web, and telehealth applications, data sets, or algorithms that are deployable on commonly available digital devices.
