Read a presentation abstract, co-authored by PCCI’s Steve Miff, that highlights the evolution of PCCI’s COVID-19 vulnerability index to the nationwide Community Protection Index.
Background The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical and ongoing need for leaders across health care, public health, and government to have real-time, hyper-local data. These data need to be relevant and meaningful across multiple sectors. Moreover, data are most likely to be useful when they facilitate connections across systems, enable situational awareness, and drive equitable decision making.
Other authors of the presentation include members from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, PCCI, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and Civitas Networks for Health.
