Long-term care facilities wrestle with a spectrum of infections, from isolated cases to facility-wide outbreaks.
Having modernized infection control infrastructure not only enables the facility to protect its residents and staff in a timely manner, but it can also reduce staff burden, lower risk of citation and penalties and protect the facility’s bottom line.
-Create a population surveillance process to identify new infections and outbreaks quickly
-Create a system that helps with communication and plan activation between the staff and the providers
-Get clear insights on the performance of all facilities
-Lower the time and manpower needed for regulatory reporting
In 2017, a family crisis led Dr. Michael Fang to delve into the emerging science of precision medicine. However, he and cofounder Rob Holton also realized that precision medicine was out of reach for many. So, they set out to find a way to make these innovative technologies available to those most vulnerable while also making them financially advantageous to organizations. Thus, BASE10 was born. .
As the Director of Data and Analytics at BASE10, Kelsey supports the scaling of the existing data architecture and develop a team of data analysts and scientists that will identify the data needed to answer novel clinical questions. Kelsey holds a M.S. in bioinformatics from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and a bachelor’s degree in genetics from the University of Georgia.
