“At Yegii, we’re tapping into spare brain capacity wherever it resides. Ebola has proved to be a challenge to our expertise on demand model, simply because few considered themselves truly expert on the matter, but we needed to take it on, as we saw lacking global awareness of Ebola’s magnitude.” Trond Undheim, Founder, Yegii, Inc.
"Our response to Ebola has been largely reactive, ill-informed and inefficient. Despite having the human capital, technology and financial resources available, there was no plan in place as evidenced by the lack of execution and unnecessary deaths. This will not be the last epidemic - a global disaster agency with regionally distributed, rapid response units is needed. ” said Christopher Collins, head of the Boston office at ECG Management Consultants, a national healthcare consulting firm, and a Yegii Advisory Board member.
