COVID-19 Contact Tracer

Thanks to the HWC community for help. With it, we got an opportunity to launch our mobile app COVID-19 Contact Tracer. A bunch of volunteers helped us with the design of the web-site and upcoming version of iOS version of the application. HWC community was a starting point for the next successful events like the sel...

From Brennen Hodge, Citizen Health

I think the HWC community is the most valuable asset on the internet right now. The whole world is going to spend trillions of $ to fight COVID-19, and HWC has the intellectual value that can beat COVID-19. It's an amazing thing to watch and be a part of this community.

Over the past month, our project has formed a team of over 130 talented volunteers from around the world. We've re...

Science Engine COVID

HWC accelerated recruiting massively. Super talented people (i.e. AWS scientists, quantum physicists, FDA scientists, molecular virologists) volunteering on the team. Very helpful resources: advice, technology offers (i.e. AWS credits).

Guardiome

We were going to build the Childhood Cancer Directory later (and not for this pandemic), but HWC changed our priorities. For the past few weeks, we have been focussed on building this directory. Moreover, the HWC community and its leaders are responsive and fast. Your speediness has been contagious and as a result we...

Eric Ries on behalf of School Closures, PPE Coalition and Good News Daily

Right when HWC launched I put three projects on the site.

School Closures, a free hotline and website with information for families impacted by school closures, PPE Coalition, an umbrella group made up of the largest entities working on solving the PPE shortage, and Good News Daily which shares a bit of ...

The Citizen Health

I have told Kinjal through DM's that our organization really is the "little company that could." Citizen Health is an organization dedicated to rebuilding healthcare. We like to think of our company as a model of Tesla and SpaceX; if they built a Healthcare Ecosystem, what would that look like? We like to think that this is us- different segments working together that can driv...

ClinWiki.org

With the help of HWC, ClinWiki.org has been able to leverage our already existing tool and quickly build a community around COVID-19 trials. By posting our clinical trials tracker project on HWC, we have been able to gather a group of 10 passionate and engaged volunteers who have been instrumental to the suc...

iFixit

With the help of the HWC community, we have collected, organized, and published hundreds of service manuals for essential medical equipment. This resource is already proving valuable for biomedical repair technicians on the front lines. The treasurers of Colorado, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Delaware, and Rhode Island have followed up on our work and asked ventilator manu...

All Probono

With urgency and clear-sighted strategy, HWC set about transforming the way that humanity can mobilise and respond to COVID-19 from critically early on in the crisis. From this brilliant start to this moment in time, tens of thousands of volunteers have joined together as HWC aids ever more vital and life-saving projects all across the world. All Probono are just one of those groups who owe so muc...

ApolloHCT.com

Help With COVID brought together over 100 volunteers to help match medical personnel with hospitals in need. In two weeks we were able to test, build, and launch an MVP product. We’ve partnered with Southwest Airlines, IHG Hotels, and Egencia to coordinate any volunteer travel for free. This month we’ve partnered with ten hospitals in need of volunteer & full-time support created by vacancies caused by COVID-19. The team is continu...

My name is Hannah & I am the project owner of Fund COVID - we are working on connecting investors with promising COVID-19 projects via 30 minute, weekly demo days.
The HWC community has provided every critical resource that has made working on a project like this possible - volunteers, expertise, community, accountability, & the list goes on...
The general existence of HWC gave me the push I needed to ...

Front Line Suits

I joined the covid-19 supplies discord group. While I wasn't a super active member, seeing the resources and insights shared helped us understand how to define the problem and solution. For instance, I found out about a number of supply sources and ways to donate to hospitals.

Quorum X Diagnostics

The HWC platform has been excellent and we have benefited a lot from the website. The most useful components have been the office hours and the discord.

I have attended 3 office hour sessions so far. We have taken the advice about how to structure our time bw fundraising and prototype building. Excellent! Excellent advice!! Our project information has been reque...

The Vital Sign AI team

The HelpWithCovid.com website has accelerated our project Vital Sign AI incredibly. Within days, it has allowed us to form a team of 100+ volunteering healthcare professionals, data scientists, engineers and researchers from universities such as Stanford, UCLA, Oxford, NYU and all over the world.

The global exchanges from all over the world has enabled an expertise dialogue on machine learning models and latest COVID-...

Wellyou in Hard Times

HWC has helped us so much to bring "wellyou in hard times" forward. We are really enjoying and learning so much from the panel discussions, office hours and AMAs.
Through the HWC platform, we have connected to so many wonderful, warm-hearted, and helpful individuals for which we will always be so grateful. We have made connections with people that we hope will span beyond this project. C...
