A physician gave us Helen’s name and told us to contact her regarding an app that could slow the spread and save lives. Helen always had a knack for solving problems, but her peers say she seems most happy when she is able to help others.
As a business development professional for 25 years, she has worked closely with healthcare and aerospace engineers. She explained she was privileged to have worked with NASA, Lockheed Martin, Northrop, Harris Corporation, and briefly even with SpaceX prior to opening her own consulting firm. With a medical and technical background spanning over 15 years, Kramer became part of many successes of business people. However, now her goal and sole purpose in life is to inspire her clients to use the technology that is available to advance their businesses while adapting to the changing landscape of the world. True enough, the current landscape has changed and continues to, especially with the ongoing pandemic.
This brings us to her story and the creation of an app that could help save us all if the state you are in supports it. Then citizens and residents will be given the opportunity to use it. This entire idea steamed from a charitable project she is currently managing. It is an important cause on a local level that provides well-known local musicians a safe place to practice their craft. Assisted living home residents, who have been in lockdown, are now able to hear clearly through bluetooth technology, with the local musicians playing outside their windows weekly. Many of these musicians have become close friends with the residents, and their caretakers have said sharing the gift of music has helped these residents find their smiles again.
This experience guided Helen to this particular mission, and to the creation of an app that has the ability to help keep us all safe if implemented and approved by your local state representatives.
With the alarming increase in the numbers of cases attributed to the fast transmission of the virus, hospitals and assisted living facilities are overloaded. Authorities and healthcare professionals are doubling their efforts to conduct contact-tracing. This method has proved somewhat successful, but why not use actual technology to ensure American citizens’ safety?
Schools across the US are now mandating online classes and have delayed reopening in most states. This is mainly due to lack of information of knowing who has been infected and who has been in contact with someone who has been infected. Helen Kramer is hoping a government official will soon back SANUS app. SANUS is a latin word that means “healthy.” If implemented, the app will help slow the spread and can help save hundreds of thousands of lives here in the US. At the very least, Kramer is hoping the harder hit states, like her home Florida, will support it. California, Texas, and New York could benefit greatly as well.
More importantly, with the support of the local government, this application could save the lives of first responders and healthcare professionals on the front lines. While Kramer provides and leads the product direction development of the idea behind the design and function, a software application company Elko provides technology and developed a platform to power the app.
If supported and/or approved by any state in the US, the app will be downloaded onto people’s devices and they will know in minutes if they have been in contact with someone who has been infected. The beauty of this app is, it will not violate HIPPA rights or privacy rights. This way, the individual can be tested immediately for the safety of others.
This will allow everyone the opportunity to proactively participate in the eradication of the pandemic. Then schools, cities, parks, beaches, and theme parks will feel safe again.
Helen’s application has been reviewed by Florida’s Emergency Preparedness Team back in May, and now she has recently been redirected to work with Daniel Leon head of the Florida’s Department of Health.
Helen’s goal is for our nation to believe and for all the American people to band together to encourage the government to trust the American people can manage this new technology and app SANUS. The American people have already migrated to a virtual world, and many of us use apps daily. And for those of us who are not tech savvy, the app’s smart technology will simply alert you when you’ve come in contact with someone and need to be tested.
Helen mentors throughout her career who gave her the ability to believe in herself. She expressed that she is blessed to have two loving, supportive parents as well a brother who continually challenges her to think objectively. Her next project she also has partnered with Elko on. They soon will be launching OurApps.io that will build customized apps for restaurants, or any small businesses with a product or service to sell. Businesses can join now by visiting this website, for no charge and no commitment, to ensure their business will receive its own app in September.
