Description

Basil Harris, MD, PhD, FACEP (SKMC 02' and Jefferson Emergency Medicine Residency Graduate 2005) helped lead a team that created DxtER (pronounced Dexter), a tricorder prototype, for the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE competition. DxtER is a consumer product designed to monitor your health and diagnose illnesses in the comfort of your own home. DxtER functions autonomously, but can also share important information with your healthcare providers at your discretion. At the heart of DxtER is an artificially intelligent engine that learned to diagnose by integrating years of experience in clinical emergency medicine with data analysis from actual patients having a variety of medical conditions and outcomes. Included with DxtER is a collection of non-invasive sensors custom-designed to collect data about your vital signs, body chemistry, and biological functions. The diagnostic engine synthesizes your health data to make a quick and accurate assessment.

Basil is a physician with a PhD in engineering. He has been actively practicing emergency medicine for over fifteen years, spending the last twelve years at Lankenau Medical Center of Main Line Health. Basil was named a Top Doctor by Main Line Today in 2016 for the third time. Despite his daily regimen of chaos in the ER, his engineering training is ever present. Basil's years at Drexel and Cornell Universities hardwired him to think like an engineer and he is a constant tinkerer. He has research experience in medicine and engineering with over a dozen publications. He and his co-founder, George Harris, are brothers who grew up in the Philadelphia region.
