The COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges in expedient data aggregation using current technology. State and local government agencies need to understand the health of their communites’ population and how to effectively respond. In the face of this crisis, they are reaching out to vendors to explore, consider, and implement new solutions that utilize cloud technology.
The fast-spreading virus forced rapid movement to the cloud. In doing so, many states have embraced a new era of solutions that show enhanced speed to value, are quick to respond to changes, and prove agile enough to aggregate and normalize data from numerous sources for meaningful analysis. Join this session to learn about a real-time clinical database, which was implemented in 11 days!
Additionally, understand how it can be utilized far beyond this unprecedented disruption to bring meaningful data to public health jurisdictions for data-driven policy management and improved citizen outcomes.
