Rapid diagnosis and treatment of infectious disease is critical to both the patient and the broader community. ENACT (Early Notification to Act, Control, and Treat) partners with innovators to develop disruptive technologies that detect, prognosticate outcomes, and enable early intervention following exposures to both natural and man-made infectious threats.
Through these three objectives, ENACT upends the traditional doctor-patient paradigm by empowering people to take their health and healthcare into their own hands. By giving people timely indication of when they are infected, the objectives 1) shorten illness duration; 2) reduce illness spread; 3) improve access to medical treatment and care; and 4) reduce costs. While improving outcomes, ENACT also seeks to increase user satisfaction.
