THINKMD, a public benefit corporation founded by UVM LCOM Professor of Pediatrics and TGIR mentor Barry Finette, M.D., Ph.D.,
has recently released a free COVID-19 Personal Triage, Educational and Surveillance Tool
. The tool, designed as a progressive web-based application, guides users through a COVID-19 self-risk assessment based on the latest published peer-reviewed World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention clinical data on presenting signs, symptoms and risk factors. THINKMD is working to distribute this tool globally with international health agencies and organizations, as well as directly to the public, and has established a special partnership with Mondia Media and their mobile network partners in Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, and beyond. Functional on any desktop, tablet, or mobile smartphone, the tool will be available in the near future to work offline in resource-poor areas.
