How ClearForce hopes to use technology to reduce veteran suicides

Retired Marine Corps Col. Mike Hudson is vice president of ClearForce, a company he said is working to "take its successful commercial technology and re-mission it" to fight veteran and service member suicide. By collating limited publicly available data on social determinants of health without compromising privacy, ClearForce aims to "highlight in real time" veterans and service members "in need of outreach." Through a multitiered system of support they hope will include the VA, veterans service organizations, and active-duty military commands, ClearForce would enable personal engagement with veterans and service members under pressure. It would link them with resources that Hudson said could "empower a course correction."
