Clinical AI Leader Jvion Launches COVID Community Vulnerability
ATLANTA, March 24, 2020 (GLOBE
NEWSWIRE) -- Jvion, the leader in clinical
AI, today announced the launch of its COVID Community Vulnerability Map. The public facing tool,
built on Microsoft Azure maps, enables healthcare providers and
communities battling the COVID pandemic to identify the social
determinants of health (SDOH) that put populations at greater risk,
informing community planning and resource allocation to proactively
mitigate the risk to vulnerable populations.
The interactive map identifies populations down to the census block level that are at risk for severe outcomes upon contracting a virus like COVID. Severe outcomes include hospitalization, organ failure and mortality. Additionally, the map surfaces the socioeconomic and environmental factors, such as lack of access to transportation or nutritious food, that put patients at greater risk. The map is also overlaid with points of interest, such as hospitals, food sources and transportation, in relation to the at-risk communities.
