ReD Associates Millie P. Arora (mpa@redassociates.com)
Additional: tmo@redassociates.com
New York City, NY ReD has 15+ years’ experience employing a mixed-methods approach – with deep expertise in ethnographic research and usability testing – to guide product strategy and development; adoption and acceptability; and user experience design. We have conducted in-depth research in both clinical and community settings with patients, HCPs, and administrators, across the US and globally. Our methods allow us to gain access to, engage, and surface the underlying needs, attitudes, and practices of hard-to-reach populations, which other organizations often struggle to study, such as rural communities. Our ethnographic, ‘outside-in’ approach examines the physical, social, and lived-experience contexts in which a new or existing product (such as the CDP), is encountered and experienced. We uncover how this context shapes and informs not only how but especially why patients, clinicians, community members and other stakeholders engage with, adopt (or fail to adopt), and ultimately find value in and from a product – including what they need in and from their interaction with the product. Throughout this process, we work closely with key partner stakeholders including design and engineering teams to define key questions, interpret mixed methods data, and translate findings into concrete recommendations for product and experience (re)design as well as community engagement and adoption strategies. We are looking to partner with a healthcare provider(s) who would be the main investigator and clinical lead for TA1, particularly in providing direct patient care, conducting clinical effectiveness research studies, and analyzing financial sustainability – with ReD’s partnership and support. We believe ReD’s expertise and experience are best leveraged by a partner especially for: 1) the community viability plan, in engaging local stakeholders to uncover underlying barriers to and potentially enablers of community adoption; 2) CPD workflow playbook, in collaborating with a clinical partner(s) to synthesize qualitative and quantitative findings into tangible recommendations for how to best deliver the product and program; and, 3) continuous UX-testing, in performing on-going research to refine and improve the product and experience with very granular observations and recommendations (e.g. for features and configuration). That said, ReD’s research experience especially with hospital administrators and HCPs could also be an valuable asset to a partner aiming to understand needs and requirements around long-term financial sustainability from the perspective of the operating hospital or healthcare system. We take a deeply collaborative, bespoke, and dynamic approach to partnership, tailoring our outputs and deliverables to the evolving needs of our clinical partner and, ultimately, funder.

San Antonio, Texas CyPath® Lung is a noninvasive, high-throughput diagnostic companion to CT imaging for the quick and accurate detection of lung cancer in individuals deemed at high risk for the disease. Patients collect their sample at home and overnight it to the lab by prepaid FedEx. Our validation study showed the test’s high sensitivity (92%) and specificity (87%) in high-risk individuals with small pulmonary nodules 20 mm or less. Half of those in the cancer cohort had Stage I or II lung cancer. All cancer types were detected. Our test is now offered as a laboratory developed test and can be ordered by physicians nationwide. There has been particular interest by physicians and patients from rural communities where at-home sample collection, ease in sample return, and quick turn-around of results (3 days) is important. CyPath® Lung investigates the lung microenvironment to identify cell populations in sputum that are indicative of malignancy using flow cytometry and automated data analysis developed with AI. We look to team with a partner delivering diagnostic services to rural communities for lung cancer who have interest in determining best practices for providing noninvasive diagnostic services. Furthermore, we are interested in evaluating the interest in rural communities in using CyPath Lung as a test used prior to screening as an aid to identify patients who can best benefit from additional diagnostic services.

Miami, FL EyeCheq has developed and deployed the world's only fully autonomous eye screening solution. Containing a leading OEM retinal camera and auto-refractor and integrated into our custom, self-service kiosk and desktop modalities, our solution enables the masses to be screened without the need for a medical technician. Our affiliated eye doctors then interpret the results within 24 hours. The eyes are truly the window to our wellness and the EyeCheq screening can indicate diseases such as diabetes, retinopathy, high blood pressure, glaucoma, macular degeneration and a host of others. And because our solution also provides a visual acuity test, users are able to learn whether they need a corrective lens prescription (either new or updated) as well.

The EyeCheq screening takes 5-7 minutes and because a skilled operator is not needed, eye screenings can now be available in communities where they were previously inaccessible. Our solution can be fit into mobile clinics, small rooms and even into retail locations. More at eyecheq.com.
EyeCheq would be a great solution to incorporate into a mobile clinic and/or rural community where access to an eye care provider is insufficient. Our disease screening technology can be added easily to a more comprehensive clinical model without requiring additional human resources to administer. We seek a teaming partner that wishes to take the lead on the proposal for TA1 and/or TA2 and wishes to augment their offering through a simple, effective solution like ours.

Detroit, Michigan Syncoro Health is comprised of medical and surgical physician experts, experienced organizational leaders, and analysts who can effectively connect with physicians and community leaders to establish novel healthcare delivery platforms to assess, analyze, and address rural healthcare needs, and evaluate the effectiveness of this endeavor both clinically and popularly utilizing valid and reliable data. Our team is an ideal candidate for Technical Area 1: Decentralization of Hospital Services.

Our research is multifaceted:
(1) We focus on clinical outcomes as a result of novel healthcare delivery. Specific outcomes vary by clinical indication; for example, in patients with chronic inflammatory conditions, which are often managed in outpatient settings, reduction in hospitalizations and emergency department usage is an ideal outcome to study. Our previous work in rural healthcare expansion demonstrated a significant reduction in hospitalizations or emergency department usage through improvements in specialty physician access.
(2) We also study the financial effectiveness of novel healthcare delivery; downstream revenue to local healthcare for maximization of community engagement is critical for adoption of novel platforms.
We look forward to developing partnerships in Technical Areas 2, 3, and 4 to execute this important mission. Collegial, innovative thinkers capable of adjusting conventional technology would be ideal partners and we trust our leaders at PARADIGM to identify the best candidates.

We will require a subcontractor for Technical Area 5 to execute the intelligent task guidance. Our Syncoro Health team will provide the medical expertise, surgical expertise, and community engagement, and will lean on a separate organization for automation and upskilling, where clinically appropriate.

Gaithersburg, MD We offer a multi-cancer early detection (MCED) blood test that is accurate, affordable, and easily accessible using capillary blood collected at pharmacies, mobile units, and at home. OneTest for Cancer is currently the second most popular MCED in the U.S. and is used by hundreds of employers, medical providers, and individuals. Our test measures protein and inflammatory biomarkers rather than circulating tumor DNA. 20/20 is seeking to partner with providers of CT imaging as our MCED is used to identify patients who warrant CT screening for cancers of the lung, liver, pancreas, ovaries, and other solid organs. We also seek to partner with medical systems who target rural Americans who often fail to participate in preventative screenings.

SiPhox Health, Genalyte, Intel, AIM Photonics Daniel L. Kaplan, Ph.D. (Daniel.Kaplan@siphox.com) Burlington, MA SiPhox Health is developing novel silicon-chip-based assays for health biomarkers. The SiPhox technology relies on ring resonance to measure binding of blood molecules to antibodies on silicon chips. The system detects changes in light wavelength resonance as blood antigens bind to capture antibodies, followed by binding of a detector antibody for high specificity. SiPhox Health, in collaboration with the Intel Corporation and AIM Photonics, has developed an inexpensive and durable cartridge for placing the blood drop on the chip sensors, and a small reader for light detection. SiPhox Health, in collaboration with our partners, is now developing an ultra-rugged and inexpensive cartridge to read any of our tests, and a highly durable and inexpensive reader, a hand-held device that may be used in a PARADIGM mobile vehicle, or at any primary care facility or home in the US. We are seeking to partner with an organization that can deliver top notch clinical care, outside of blood work, to team up for an ARPA-H PARADIGM proposal.

Miami Gardens, Florida Our mission is to extend cancer survivorship of late-stage cancer diagnoses for those in rural areas. The Orchid Oncological Care Navigation Platform addresses three barriers to cancer care that affect overall survival which disproportionately affects vulnerable populations and communities of color: Limited Access to Therapeutics, Poor Patient Education, and Healthcare System Navigation. Our platform expands access to therapeutics through the Taylor-Prosser Library, offering rural providers and patients more treatment options, geolocation, and referral identification in real time. In addition, the Orchid Oncological Care Navigation Platform features a remote nursing care front-end that utilizes WHO’s quality-of-life metrics for point-of-care insights, and our team of remote nurses help navigate common systemic issues such as financial toxicity. Our oncological software platform can stand alone, accommodate other technologies in our platform, or act as a seamless bolt-on to other technologies. We are a mobile unit, facility, pharma and oncology diagnosis agnostic service. Our project strongly aligns with ARPA-H and Cancer X Moonshot goals to improve overall cancer survivorship by 50% in 25 years or less through providing remote oncology care to rural populations. We are looking for partners to use the Orchid Oncological Care Navigation Platform as either a stand-alone full remote nursing outreach program, to fit within our Platform, or to use our Oncology Care Navigation as a bolt-on service. In addition to care navigation and oncology survivorship, we can address secondary conditions with remote specialty access, patient care-in-place models, and preventative screening to improve post-screening follow-up rates. We are focused on ARPA-H Paradigm areas TA1, TA2, TA3, and TA5 and seek conversations with potential collaborators to improve rural healthcare services. Website: www.orchidhealthcaresolutions.com
