7 Ways to Boost Data Impact in Response to the Pandemic: Advice from the Nation's State Chief Data Officers [open pdf - 0B]
From the Document: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic is affecting every state and illuminates the critical role data plays in their response efforts. The members of the State Chief Data Officers Network [hyperlink], which consists of 25 state Chief Data Officers [CDO] across the country, are stepping up to support their states' efforts to use data. Whether understanding supplies of personal protective equipment, which hospitals are nearing capacity, or reporting accurate testing data to the public, state CDOs are leaning in to improve how data are shared and used. Based on CDOs experiences to date, adopting effective practices in the COVID-19 response will help states move from crisis to recovery. Right now states are focused on sharing data about testing, infection rates in nursing homes and correctional facilities, and unemployment. In the future, state leaders will need the right data to inform the recovery phase and how to best reopen child care centers, economic sectors, and schools. [Included in this document are] best practices the State Chief Data Officers Network recommends to improve states' ability to share and use data during this crisis and through recovery."
