“Illness is universal. Access to care is not.” - Dr. Raj Panjabi
The drivers of inequity are different for every community and each individual. Health disparities exist at every level. The personalization of healthcare ennobles the individual.
Personalization creates a platform for precise interventions that engage those previously missed by a system built for the average patient, perfect for no patient.
The global health sector has redoubled efforts to identify and reach under-served and marginalized communities. macro-eyes is deploying core machine learning to identify and understand in high-dimensionality these populations; machine learning the factors that contribute to and predict loss-to-follow-up.
When we identify the hurdles that prevent individuals from engaging in essential care, we can design solutions that create opportunity and equity.
