Dear Team

Why: Open source mobile technology  is needed to improve the science of 
healthcare delivery to reduce patient harm, with a specific interest in the 11 
areas of all cause harm (Sepsis, CAUTI, VTE,  etc.). Medical Errors kill 
400,000 patients each year in the US and is the 3rd leading cause of death only 
preceded by heart disease and cancer. Med Error is a  $29 billion dollar 
problem in the US with unnecessary pain and suffering. Its like 1 jumbo jet 
crashing each day in death tolls.

About: is a start-up firm with innovation labs in the 
Philadelphia area.  Our goal is  to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of 
healthcare delivery - specifically at the intersection of quality patient 
safety, clinical performance, health IT.  Using an MVP early model, my doctoral 
work will be featured as Impact Case for Catheter Infection Prevention by the 
national Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research next month.

Need: is seeking strategic hospitals, universities, and 
industry partners to collaborate on building the next generation of mobile 
device technology for providers using big data, gamification, just-in-time 
learning, AI, and machine learning to reduce all cause harm and drive better 
outcomes in hospitals in the US and globally.

Validation: Using an open source mobile platform, we aim to validate real-time 
measures of "Nursing value"  and "Physician value" in the equation below to 
reduce all cause harm. My hypothesis is this - with open source technology, we 
can measure value as  leading indicator that impacts patient outcomes in 
real-time. Currently hospitals measure  medical harm data (NDNQI)  which is a 
lagging indicator and done manually with 3 month data delay.


Next Steps:  I welcome a call to discuss opportunities further.

Thank you, Kate

To add a bit to what Bertrand says, it is likely that there is a bit of a gulf 
between what Apache expects new communities to be and do and what you might 
come up with from first principles or raw expectations.

That said, your suggested projects could be really valuable and they might very 
well fit well in the Apache community of communities. Your call for potential 
champions is exactly the right first step. A good champion can help you figure 
out what Apache is and what it is that we do (and don't do).

Bertrand's suggestion that you say a bit more about what you are doing and want 
to do is spot on. That is how you get people excited.

Many potential champions and mentors are reading this list, the best
way to raise their attention might be to give some more information
about your software, ideally pointers to existing code.

The Incubator is usually not keen on accepting projects for incubation
without an initial codebase and a (minimal maybe) community, so if you
can point us to those it might help raise interest.
