WHO: Citizen scientists are involved as equal partners in this program, this time as contributors to app development. SMART Response is catered towards patients who are in need of urgent care, and who would benefit from quick diagnosis and treatment.
WHAT: SMART Response is the most advanced edition of the SMART Platform. Its purpose is to develop real-time interventions to address population health crises. As part of SMART Response, we are working with communities, citizen scientists, and stakeholders to identify, address, and evaluate real-time interventions. As the strength of SMART Response is to adapt to the changing community needs and stakeholder priorities, it is being developed as a versatile platform that could be adapted for rapid response.
