COVID Data Solutions for the St. Louis Region

Paul Sorenson | Douglas Briggs | Haresh Bhatia

The ongoing pandemic has created both an acute need and a unique opportunity for regional healthcare data.  There is an unprecedented urgency to use data from a wide variety of sources to inform and guide the work and decisions of regional Departments of Health, healthcare system leaders, public health, and infectious disease researchers, as well as elected officials and the general public.  Collecting, integrating, and analyzing this data effectively is a substantial challenge requiring skilled data practitioners as well as new levels of cooperation and collaboration throughout the region.  In this presentation, we explore the scope of this challenge, the progress that the contributors have accomplished in pursuit of these lofty-yet-necessary goals, and the call for further progress – both within the current crisis and any future healthcare events.
