Casey Health is a Strategic Alliance to Fight COVID-19. Open for public or private sector engagements in contact tracing and vaccine outreach, employing primarily Black and Hispanic individuals to provide effective community-focused outreach, enabling communities to better combat COVID-19 through streamlined and consistent outreach, data gathering, follow-up, escalation audit, and risk management procedures.
AUSTIN, TX – August 5, 2021: Kilroy Blockchain and Austin Urban Technology Movement (AUTM) have announced Casey Health, a strategic alliance between the two organizations that provides training and job placement for underserved candidates, and places them in health tech outreach positions related to COVID-19, using Kilroy Blockchain's Casey outbreak management system.
About Casey Health
In this alliance, AUTM recruits, trains and supplies candidates, and Kilroy Blockchain provides the software, Casey. With the synergy between the two organizations, contact tracing and vaccine outreach, including testing or vaccine follow-ups, can be provided to organizations as a turnkey solution - leaving their own staff free to do their normal work, and far safer than without Casey Health.
According to Michael Ward Jr., AUTM's President and CEO, “We are battling two issues, a pandemic that is disproportionally impacting the Black and Hispanic communities and a lack of exposure of technical jobs inside the healthcare industry. Through our partnership with Kilroy Blockchain, we are able to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and provide sustainable jobs for underserved communities.”
Karen Kilroy, Kilroy Blockchain's CEO stated, "I am extremely excited and grateful for our alliance with AUTM in Casey Health. By mobilizing community members to address the problem at hand - controlling coronavirus - and using the best tool set available - Casey, we plan to make a dent in the problems facing us: a suffering economy, waves of panic, and an unmanageable rate of reproduction."
AUTM bridges the gap between the Black and Hispanic communities and the technology industry through job placement, career development, and networking opportunities. More about AUTM: https://www.autmtx.org
