Many people currently find themselves in deep crisis. Some amongst us have lost their job, basements have flooded, others are living with chronic illness. Our platform seeks to develop crisis scores across different domains of life: food, shelter, health, employment, etc. This enables us to target interventions to people where they are, when they need it.
During a global pandemic, it has been crucial to figure out how we can better serve our patients with minimal contact. At OGI, we have launched a remote monitoring program, enabling a partnership between folks suffering from liver disease and their care-givers. Through this partnership, we deployed technology to manage weight fluctuations and flag potential decompensation of the liver (deprecating liver function).
Over 200 million hours is spent looking for clean drinking water every day. We believe this to be a waste of human potential. Access to clean water should not be an uncertain struggle. We Make Impact turns every $20 into an Empowerment Package which includes 1 Filter Fountain (eliminating 98.7% of bacteria) and access to the skills, tools, and resources to build filters for sale in the community & break out of the poverty cycle. In our Uganda pilot, selling 3-10 Filtration Packages per day represents 3-26x the average Ugandan income.
Many medical protocols and standards were designed with a narrow patient cohort in mind: white men. Through research, we are finding that men and women often report significantly different liver enzyme levels. Liver enzymes serve as a threshold for additional testing (and contribute to diagnosis of many diseases as an affordable blood biomarker). Thus, it is important that we consider refining these thresholds to make them relevant to more people. This publication suggests gender-specific screening thresholds for fibroscan to better gage liver scarring and steatosis (fatty build up).
Patients with decompensation of the liver (impaired function) have few tried and true interventions that could help improve their condition. Our technology triages patients into steps within "clinical research as a care option" or remote monitoring. This application enables care managers to effectively triage patients under their care.
