A Vermont-Made App That Could Save Kids' Lives

Medical providers, tech experts and business professionals joined together to create in Vermont to create MEDSINC, a mobile app that helps people with no medical background to treat children with health risks. The "mobile intelligence software" provides a list of questions to help assess a child's health risks and, based on results, offers treatment suggestions. An early pilot shows, "the app's recommendations have corresponded to those of actual pediatricians 94 percent of the time."
