Imperial College London Launches COVID-19 Information Platform
From a Joint Blog Post:
A consortium of technology companies comprising Cloudwick, MirrorWeb, and Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL (AWS), is working with PanSurg, an Imperial College London COVID-19 surgical network made up of healthcare professionals and academics from the Department of Surgery and Cancer and the Institute of Global Health Innovation, to build a global knowledge platform to help provide the healthcare community with guidance on delivering high quality care to COVID-19 patients.
Called REDASA (REaltime Data Analysis and Synthesis), the platform will pool global data on COVID-19 from over half a million sources and use machine learning and artificial intelligence combined with human curation to extract the most important insights in real-time for clinicians and policymakers.
The current pandemic has given rise to a huge mass of material on COVID-19 scattered across a vast range of sources. Yet, there is limited guidance and consensus on how to best deliver care for coronavirus patients. REDASA was launched to address these issues.
