***Problem: COVID-19 Will Cause Staffing Shortages***
***Idea: Professionals have spare time to volunteer to hospitals***
***Solution: Website that connects professionals to hospitals in need***

Our goal is to connect medical providers to hospitals with staffing shortages caused by COVID-19. Italy & France have shown us the importance of being able to increase hospital capacity quickly. In addition to nurses & doctors, facilities will need technicians, schedulers, admins, etc.

We are building a centralized location where hospitals can request services, and anyone with a medical skillset can offer their time.

With current projections, the largest strain on the healthcare system will come 2-4 weeks from today. To get ahead of the curve we are executing a version of the following plan -

Week 1 - Build Intake for Volunteers & Hospitals (COMPLETE)
Week 2 - Begin to Match Volunteers to Jobs (NEED HELP NOW)
Week 3 - Continue enrollment & Run Support Operations
Week 4 & Onward - Develop features facilities are asking for.

We launched our beta targeted at physicians before the Coronavirus pandemic and can be viewed here:

Tech & Non-Tech volunteers welcome. Together we can mitigate staffing shortages and save lives.

How far along is it

We've launched our MVP product & had 330 providers register to volunteer with us.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

Non-Tech volunteers welcome.

Tech side, our MVP product serves as an intake system that can readily match providers with hospitals. Current tech stack is PHP & React. To aid in coronavirus efforts we would need to build additional features:

- Matching System (Currently Manual)
- Provider Intake Form
- Upload Download of Documents
- Map of Jobs
- Other features as requested by customers

We need additional non tech help:

- Legal agreements
- Advertising
- Physician, Nurse, & other Provider Enrollment.

Stay safe, care for the sick.
