LifeSaver Feasibility Assessment

Predicting emerging pandemics.

Project Overview

Updated March 31, 2023.

The Problem

We are currently living through a pandemic.

Data alone is insufficient to make decisions on actions to take in an emergency. First-responders, policy makers and the general public need better tools to plan and make decisions in complex emergency and disaster situations, like COVID-19.  There is currently no publicly available source of predictive data suitable for rapidly changing crises such as the COVID19 pandemic.

How We Are Solving It

This platform permits rapid decision making to improve the deployment of critical resources. It can forecast a regional need before it develops, utilizing a dataset optimized for use in predictive modelling. It can pull and aggregate data from public sources, health authorities, medical institutions & self- as well as ancillary data such as travel conditions and weather.
