Hi, medstudent in San Francisco here. So inspired by everyone’s apps, whether they are in the form of ideas, sample apps, or MVP’s. I’ve seen apps that help hospitals assess bed capacity, apps that act as daily checklists for sterilizing surfaces, apps that help disaster agencies distribute resources, and apps that inform ordinary people to navigate through the current crises.
Many of us in the health field are also worried about COVID-19’s longer lasting impacts on people’s chronic health conditions.
So I wonder if we can discuss any challenges, such as the ones referenced above, that would necessitate the development of a public app in order to provide aid to people, connect people, or give a clear, adaptive action plans to beat the aftershocks of COVID-19.
Can the app connect community champions without asking for too much personal information? Collect data on chronic disease right now that can be useful in the long run? Let’s discuss.
