A moral imperative for urgency
Miamians look forward to longer lifespans with each generation, but also risk the costs and challenges of managing chronic disease. The Wellness Home Integrator envisions the home as a setting that enables excellent health management while protecting its inhabitants privacy and self-determination.

AccurePCI will use clinically-driven results to help healthcare professionals personalize life-saving treatments for each person in Miami-Dade’s diverse community. For example, 30% of people are carriers of a hepatic drug-processing gene that results in the majority stenting treatment failures, over $2B of preventable medical expenses, and avoidable deaths; people of Latin American ancestry are disproportionately vulnerable to heart disease and have higher than expected mortality rates. A collaboration of leading medical centers and technology companies on this challenge will develop an innovation ecosystem around personalized medicine in Miami-Dade County.
Miami-Dade County is home to the largest percentage of people with serious mental illness of America's urban areas. Underprivileged communities face great barriers to care access, and the stresses of quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic are affecting everyone. In partnership with Albizu University and the Third Mission Institute, AwareMe’s team is designing a system of digital phenotyping through common personal devices to identify early symptoms of loss of mental wellness, and also understand the relationship between cardiac diseases and mental health.

Miami-Digital mobile ubiquity, algorithmic analysis of clinical information, contextual consumer data, and smart rules will power the digital augmentation of well-established clinical care pathways. Itineris acts as a digital therapeutics platform and will take form of a Patient Engagement Decision Support System or “Intelligent Assistant” that efficiently manages simultaneous data feeds according to the patient state and their predicted future states to provide the right action, at the right time, for the right person, interconnecting multiple parties to a single care plan, over time.

Making Miami safer for everyone
As the virus mutates and periodically presents new threats, the GCL has reaffirmed healthcare security and community healthcare resiliency organic parts of its mission. Healthcare security is ultimately local, and communities that do not develop their own defenses remain vulnerable to inevitable epidemics in a globally interconnected world. Miami is a global city, as such overexposed to these global threats, which are compounded by natural events like hurricanes, and by mosquito-borne diseases.
