Funding to support continued development of GeoHealth Platform as well as expand staffing

Rockville, MD, Monday, July 27, 2020 –HSR.health is proud to announce that it has secured funding to support at least the next four (4) years of planned operational expenses, including expanded staffing and continued development of its patent-pending GeoHealth Platform. Support comes through corporate and foundation sources and is a recognition that improved data analytic and decision support tools are needed to improve early detection and response to the current pandemic and potentially future contagious viral diseases.

Funding is based on the success of the firm’s ongoing support for COVID-19 response effort at the Federal level and across multiple states. Using the GeoHealth Platform, HSR.health has developed a unique approach to predict the risk of spread and location of future outbreaks of COVID-19, through its Transmission Risk Index. In addition, its Mortality Risk Index identifies the regions with the highest risk of critical illness and death due to the virus.

Leveraging the Platform and pandemic risk indices, HSR.health has also aided states identify the potential range of required ventilators and their potential locations, as well as take a data analytic approach to identify personal protective equipment (PPE) needs by type at a health system or state-wide level.

“As a front-line provider, I am excited to share this innovative tool with the entire world. I hope that by doing so we can, most importantly, save thousands of lives, and also provide a path to reopening global economies ensuring the welfare and prosperity of people here and abroad”, says, Ram Peruvemba, MD, HSR.health CMO and a practicing anesthesiologist who has been treating COVID-19 patients in a hospital setting throughout the pandemic.

The GeoHealth Platform is an innovative, health-focused geographic information system (GIS) with a data analytic engine that merges demographic data & trends, data on health outcomes and costs, as well as social determinants of health to address a range of population health issues – including the opioid epidemic, maternal and child health (MCH), managing healthcare costs within a capitation model, and also supports disaster and pandemic response efforts. Multiple patents are filed and published on the GeoHealth Platform and additional patents are planned.

HSR.health is seeking to hire additional public health analysts, data analysts, geospatial analysts, and develop a sales team.
