St. Jeanne de Lestonnac Free Clinic, Orange CA

 Integration of Artificial Intelligence into Diabetic Eyecare:  

Artificial intelligence (AI) in eye care uses machine learning to develop automated DR detection algorithms. Uninsured patients face a significant challenge in accessing healthcare due to cost. Lestonnac's Integration of Artificial Intelligence into Diabetic Eyecare (IAIDE)  program improves access to care by using AI to review scans/prepare reports. Integration of AI into retina screening provides internal capability for diabetic retinopathy detection, improves access to screening, and uploads images into our electronic health records.

Funds will be used for purchasing a Nexy camera with cloud-based AI fundus image analysis software, which detects 12 different retinal pathologies.

West Virginia Oral Health Coalition, Charleston, WVA

to conduct a pilot in alliance with the Harmony Health Foundation and one dental care site in West Virginia to improve access to preventive oral health care for underserved adults. The proposed pilot will extend the use of the Oral Genome Device, a point-of-care dental saliva test that can be utilized at home to provide quick assessment of disease risk levels for caries, periodontal disease, halitosis, and diabetes, which aids in early detection and diagnosis. Patients will have the opportunity at virtual coaching sessions to help improve prevention, improve home oral hygiene behaviors, and expand knowledge on health and nutrition. Dental providers, staff and residents from the care site will participate in a shared learning experience to integrate patient engagement technology in the underserved and low-socioeconomic areas of West Virginia where wait times for preventive and treatment appointments for care are significant.
