volunteers professionals – without anyone having to travel!

• Free clinics in the U.S.

How GTN works
When health workers on the ground need help with patients, they enter their findings into the electronic health record, log in to GTN’s website, upload their consultation requests and indicate the degree of urgency.
GTN is developing a software algorithm that will evaluate data points regarding the patient and health worker and match them with the most appropriate physician volunteer who can be available at the required time.
Through use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the algorithm will continually improve its ability to provide optimal matches.
