How to Get Involved

Why This Technology Matters

  • POCUS can be used in almost any setting, from urban hospitals to rural clinics and even in military combat.
  • It can save patients thousands of dollars in medical expenses, especially those who are uninsured or underinsured - POCUS can be used to help diagnose on the spot and eliminate the need for a patient to have an x-ray or be referred to a specialist.
  • The Butterfly iQ systems we are hoping to purchase have received accolades such as:
    •  2019 Apple Design Awards Winner - Apple
    • 2019 World Changing Ideas Winner for Health and Wellness – Fast Company
    • 2019 Healthcare Breakthrough Award- Not Impossible Labs
