Got Blockchain? Our NSF I-Corps Teams Sure Do!

Founder, MBA and software engineer Andy Coravos is using blockchain tools to power solutions that improve health across the globe.

“There are three areas where software as a medical device can be compelling. We can use digital biomarkers to measure and track clinical outcomes. As algorithms and local compute power increases, it is now possible to use those measurements to make a clinical diagnosis, a “digital diagnostic”. Finally, there’s a whole class of software that can *treat* disease. Most of these “digital therapeutics” impact the brain and/or behavior.”

Andy and her team, Elektra Labs, did our one-week program and then National training (with a $50k grant for customer discovery). She’s just been awarded a prestigious Edmund Hillary Fellowship.
