Fighting Ebola With Robots and An App Called JEDI
In West Africa, a crisis group and two technology companies are building a high-tech clinic to bring better communications and data to the fight.
Vecna CEO, Deborah Theobald, came to Liberia (where Ebola is still raging) in late November to help bring an Ebola treatment unit into the 21st—or 22nd—century. The new medical software, called CliniPAK, is based on a system already in use in veterans hospitals in the U.S., is a vanguard of the technologies that are quietly being deployed in the next round of the Ebola fight. She also travels with a robot.
