Citizen-led Disease Risk Mapping and Vector Monitoring
Data Analytics Platform to Collect Geo-tagged Data on Environmental Risk Factors
Organization: Premise Data
Location: San Francisco, California, USA
Problem: Public health programs often fail to deliver efficient prevention and control of emerging disease threats. They lack visibility into on-the-ground conditions and need greater capacity to impact operational outcomes in the field. Lack of access to ground-truth information makes it difficult for programs to surface field needs in real-time, allocate resources intelligently and enforce operational commands at scale.
Solution: Premise helps health program build a scalable and coordinated operational capacity to proactively detect and adapt to emerging disease threats. Our mobile-first solution provides real-time tasking of field contributors and total visibility into ground-truth. The Premise technology delivers:
- Ongoing data-driven operational optimization, based on dynamic targeting to ensure that the right prevention and control tasks get to the right contributors, at the right time, so that impact is maximized.
- Real-time course-correction capacity, by providing on-the-ground visibility into field operations, dynamically sending tasks to field operators and coordinating networks to reach goals.
- High-potential growth and scalability, by enabling health programs to scale network participation while ensuring high performance of large and diverse groups of users.
- Analytics-driven engagement and behavior shaping, by embedding the latest advances in behavioral science into tailored feedback to users to build skills and shape behaviors towards successful outcomes.

Primary motivation:"Premise is a Ground Truth℠ technology platform that dynamically tasks large groups of people—ranging from dozens of private employees to whole populations—to improve operational outcomes. By calling upon local, on-the-ground contributors to carry out actions and collect real-time data, Premise helps stakeholders manage human behavior in the field and maximize insights for smarter decision-making."
