An Award Winning Approach
Too often technical teams attempt to solve complex healthcare problems without listening to patients and providers. We believe that technical teams alone cannot adequately address healthcare problems and that lasting solutions necessitate co-creation with patients and providers
Data Driven – Our award-winning team members have created data-solutions for the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Google, Palantir, and Facebook, with research and publications spanning basic science, clinical trials, and healthcare policy
Led By Inclusivity – We bring all stakeholders to the table to gain insights into root-causes. Our team and advisors bridge lived-experience by interdisciplinary healthcare providers and patients to technical teams to create better solutions and better products
Oriented for Impact – We work and consult with both small and large companies to create data-driven solutions with implementation in mind. We also work with open-data and policy makers to design platforms to advance healthcare delivery in the United States
We use a unique blend of human-centered design thinking combined with the ‘Everyone Included’ method, a proven model created at Stanford University’s, Medicine X to design impactful solutions that elevate the often underheard voices in healthcare.
Teleshora at the United States Department of Health and Human Services Opioid Crisis Hackathon – Winners of the Treatment Track $10,000 prize to find data-driven solutions to the opioid epidemic (Pictured: The Telesphora Team with Bruce Greenstein, Chief Technology Officer of the United States and Mona Siddiqui, Cheif Data Officer of the United States)
Telesphora was formed in a collaboration with Origami Innovations – a design, innovation, and solution lab powered by Yale University students – to bring together data-scientists and subject matter experts to create data-driven solutions to the opioid crisis. In late 2017, Origami Innovations was invited to Capitol Hill to participate in a ‘first-of-its-kind’ HHS and Stanford Medicine X design day and code-a-thon.
The team used a unique blend of human-centered design to create a platform that uses real-time open-access data and machine learning to predict where and when increases in opioid overdose and mortality will occur. The solution empowers first-responders, hospitals, and policymakers to more intelligently allocate resources to save lives. The solution was awarded 1st place in the United States Department of Health and Human Services Opioid Code-a-Thon Treatment Track and was awarded a $10,000 prize for their continuing efforts. Thus, Telesphora was born.
The Telepshora team is working with community, state, and federal stakeholders to validate and implement their opioid prediction model and is creating a platform to create meaningful data-driven solutions to healthcare problems with healthcare partners and open-access data.
