We believe that the biggest problem in healthcare globally is the spread of infectious illness. The key to stopping the spread is better information on where and when it is starting. It is unacceptable that, in 2020, tens of thousands of lives are lost every year to the seasonal flu – an illness that we know will come each year, yet each year we are unprepared to mobilize the right resources in the right places at the right times. We believe we can change this story. Our mission is to stop the spread of contagious illness, from the flu to Covid-19, through earlier detection and earlier response.
