History

Community Expert Solutions originates from the work done as a part of the 2BeatHIV project. On December 14, 2015, 2BeatHIV launched as a research project funded by an R01 NIH NIAID grant (PIs Tucker/Rennie) and housed at UNC Chapel Hill. Dr. Allison Mathews founded the 2BeatHIV project after initial consultation from multiple community members, local businesses, and community-based organizations in Durham, NC. 2BeatHIV uses crowdsourcing to identify and develop community-sourced ideas to improve community engagement for HIV cure research. As a result, 2BeatHIV has initiated the development of several community engagement projects, including a campaign about HIV cure research, a campaign to reduce stigma associated with HIV testing, stakeholder video interviews about the challenges and opportunities for HIV cure research, and a series of HIV cure capacity building workshops with community-based organizations.


Community Expert Solutions, LLC is a social entrepreneurship company that uses research, community engagement, social marketing, and crowdsourcing contests to increase public involvement in ending health disparities. The purpose of Community Expert Solutions, LLC is to identify and develop crowdsourced ideas that promote socially responsible projects. Community Expert Solutions is affiliated with SESH Global.

How It Works

Digital LinCS will automate the process of determining people's eligibility and applying for wrap-around services like Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs). PAPs provide free medication through pharmaceutical companies to eligible patients. Digital LinCS could save taxpayers millions a year by assisting patients in accessing support services, reducing personnel-related expenses, and generating revenue with more patient visits.

The database will match users to eligible services, complete applications on their behalf, set up clinic appointments, and enable providers to track which services patients have accessed. Both patients and providers would access Digital LinCS as a tool to increase connectedness to wrap-around health services.

Digital LinCS will help people with multiple health conditions, like HIV/AIDS, diabetes, mental health, cancer, and more. CES Global will leverage our international network in Europe, Africa and Asia to scale Digital LinCS globally.

Take Control of Your Health

Take control of your health. We will ask a few questions to help us determine which services you may be eligible to access.

You can start anytime, save your answers, and complete more of your profile later.

We will use the information you give us to match you to services in our database. The more information you give, the easier it will be for us to match you!

Once you're matched, we'll complete the applications on your behalf. You can take them with you to your service provider and we can set up the appointment for you.
