PACT’s mission is to develop technology that enhances the public health community’s ability to slow the COVID-19 pandemic by augmenting the reach and efficacy of existing contact tracing strategies. We use personal digital communication devices that automate parts of the exposure detection function with privacy preserving design
PACT will achieve its mission by:
1. Designing, demonstrating, and refining systems that are private and secure by design.
2. Monitoring the implementation of systems built atop these best practices.
3. Developing proximity data sets and models based on Bluetooth RF phenomenology and public health guidance.
4. Launching pilot deployments with public health partners to assess both engineering and public health efficacy.
