The AHA is partnering with Microsoft, Kaiser Permanente, consulting firm Kearney, Merit Solutions, and UPS to launch Protecting People Everywhere, powered by HealthEquip™. HealthEquip is a smart app that will match individuals and organizations donating PPE with local hospitals based on needs-criteria. The app also will track PPE donations and manage shipping through UPS to hospitals.
The AHA is sharing this app with hospitals through its 100 Million Mask Challenge as a way for the AHA to help facilitate a more efficient means of distributing critically needed PPE to frontline health care workers. Hospitals and donors can register their PPE needs and supplies at www.health-equip.com.
