Medic Mobile has created Medic Labs, a new global health technology accelerator which will pursue moonshot ideas to drive better community health outcomes for all people, everywhere, through the intentional, equitable application of data science.

So what?

Globally, there is a growing and urgent need to improve community health. The current model of community health, based on static care and protocols, is ripe for large-scale change. New datasets and precision approaches to clinical practice are already transforming healthcare, but often just for the wealthy. Initiatives like Medic Labs could help deploy these powerful insights to strengthen health systems serving the poorest and hardest-to-reach communities.
