Jeremiah Bassey is an entrepreneur, a thinker and a problem solver. He was born in Nigeria, where he had a firsthand experience about the challenges in the healthcare Nigeria and in Sub-Saharan Africa. At the age of five, he lost his father in an auto accident, and this event prompted him to start thinking outside the box in term having to figure out how to get a good education and improve his life and that of the family. His search to better himself and solve the health and socioeconomics problem that faces the society led him to migrate to United States on his own at the age of eighteen to further his education.
He has an Associate Degree in Engineering Technology from Chandler-Gilbert community college, BS in Economics (Computer Engineering and Informatics) from Arizona State University, and currently a graduate student in Computer Science at Missouri University of Science and Technology. He is also a member of Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society, the Engineering Honor Society and IEEE.
Jeremiah currently works as the Client Technologist Imaging-Radiology. He is also responsible for overseeing tele-radiology- The process where diagnostic images are acquired and transmitted to Radiologist at different locations to be interpreted across the globe working with different vendors, and the diagnosis of those images send back to the patient and physician. IT distributed network and Radiology technologies, which is a multiple network of computers, scanners and network storage that are used to acquire, store and transmit the images and reports.
The idea for global diagnostic imaging solution became a focal point for him when he lost his brother not too long ago. The cause of dead was reportedly due to a heart problem but no diagnostic images of any kind was taken or presented to aid with any kind of diagnosis.
His mother almost lost her leg due to multiple misdiagnosis and lack of diagnostic image to aid in the proper diagnosis and treatment process. It surprised him that with all these advances in technology, there is a lack of communication and interconnection in medicine to remote areas, and there is no such effort to establish such connectivity. He states that this is the case throughout most part of the world and in rural America.
He is currently working on making diagnostic images available on a global scale. He is also writing a book.
