MedicalResearch.com: What is the background for this study? What are the main findings?
Response: This is a methodological study with a flowchart, algorithm, and theory to enable quicker identification of individuals at risk of coronavirus based on CDC’s guidelines on COVID-19.
MedicalResearch.com: What should readers take away from your report?
Response: Mathematical principles paired with medical technology will help us better understand the severity of a virus in the population in a very timely manner. By putting good information into people’s hands, we believe it will also help our hospitals avoid being overwhelmed with people who really do not need not be there.
MedicalResearch.com: What recommendations do you have for future research as a result of this work?
Response: I look forward to seeing how our AI system works in identifying at-risk individuals so that we can develop similar simplified methods for other diseases and viruses.
MedicalResearch.com: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Response: Science is for improving the lives of humans and other living things, and I am happy scientists are working in this direction.
