Use of Electronic Health Records to Support a Public Health Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Perspective from US Academic Medical Centers and State Governments
This session will summarize the collective experience of several national organizations in dealing with uncoordinated efforts that result in unnecessary delays in understanding, predicting, preparing for, containing, and mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic in the US. Response efforts involve the collection and analysis of data corresponding to healthcare organizations, public health departments, socioeconomic indicators, as well as additional signals collected directly from individuals and communities. This experience focused on electronic health record (EHR) data, since EHRs can be leveraged and scaled to improve clinical care, research, and to inform public health decision-making. The participating speakers will outline the current challenges in the data ecosystem and the technology infrastructure that are relevant to COVID-19. The infrastructure includes registries and clinical data networks to support population-level analyses. We propose a specific set of strategic next steps to increase interoperability, overall organization, and efficiencies.
Speakers: Atul Butte, UCSF; Jessie Tenenbaum, NC DHHS; Christopher Longhurst, UCSD; Philip Payne, Wustl; Melissa Haendel, UC Anschutz.
