Fed Health agencies prepare for the next Ebola

Innovating for the next Ebola -– April 3, 2015, By Billy Mitchell, FedScoop

Representatives from several of the federal agencies supporting the fight against Ebola, like the U.S. Agency for International Development, the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gathered with frontline epidemiologists and private industry innovators Thursday to discuss what they hope is the tail end of the epidemic —at least for now — and how this maddening virus will strengthen West Africa’s defenses against future outbreaks” “U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith said… “people coming together with all kinds of cross-functional skills and their passion and their unique individual talent that makes amazing things happen”…”

G2X TAKE: This is a great reminder that, while the Ebola epidemic is on the decline, planning continues as affected agencies review lessons learned in preparation for the inevitable next epidemic. Technology is certain to play a central role as these agencies coordinate efforts on issues such as identification, tracking and response. While no one is interested in profiting off of these types of incidents, forward looking firms continue to innovate and position to support the next outbreak. Funding in these areas is fleeting, but this is fresh enough in people’s minds that many of the proposed initiatives will receive their full allocation this year.
