Amy Sheon holds a doctorate in public health with more than 30 years’ experience in government, including National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases AIDS epidemiology/vaccine studies and other efforts at the interface of public health and technology innovation. Presently, she is especially focused on the population that lacks affordable, reliable internet access and the devices and skills needed to use these tools to manage their health and interact with health care, and also on use of patient-generated data for public health purposes. Since 2012 she has led the Urban Health Initiative at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, developing a community health open-data system. She has developed and would like to test e-TREAT, Electronic Telehealth REadiness Assessment Tool, to screen a population to identify digital skill level and device and connectivity barriers to telehealth use and refer individuals to local and national organizations to address gaps.
