CAGPM has partnered with the Big Ideas Lab and Bass Connections to form the Equity and Efficiency of Using Wearables Data for COVID-19 Monitoring Bass Connections team

In April 2020, Duke launched CovIdentify to test the viability of using wearables to quickly identify individuals who may have contracted the coronavirus. CovIdentify’s overarching objective is to implement existing digital biomarkers and establish new digital biomarkers to develop, validate and translate CovIdentify as a continuous screening tool. 

This project team will improve and expand the CovIdentify study by designing a new database system suitable for large-scale data analysis and recruiting members from underserved populations to participate in the study.
