Many patients had to wait for lifesaving surgeries, such organ transplants, due to the heavy burden COVID-19 caused for hospitals. Now, UTSA computer science seniors have built a software program that assists doctors in prioritizing medical procedures and treat people more efficiently.

The program, called ESCal, can organize almost three months of surgeries in a few minutes by simply working within a hospital’s existing system.

Computer Science Graduate Built His Future—Virtually—As A Student

Reprinted from UTSA Today

Spring 2020 graduating senior of Computer Science Matt Moore helps build our community—with software. As a spring 2020 graduate of UTSA with his bachelor’s degree in computer science, this software engineer will help build H-E-B’s proprietary delivery service.

The road to Moore’s H-E-B career opportunity was built both virtually and onsite. He participated in university STEM fairs and was an active member of the UTSA chapter for the Association for Computer Machinery. In ACM he worked through the ranks to eventually become its president.
