Demo of Digital Tools Created for the Harmonization of COVID-19 Diagnostic Data Collection and Reporting—Attend April 1

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that diagnostic data from testing devices is harmonized, automated, and shared with public health authorities and other key stakeholders is essential. Unfortunately, this process is not occurring because diagnostic devices and tests have not yet been coupled with applications or digital software tools.

On April 1, from 1:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m. ET, 12 technology teams will demo digital solutions and products for potentially jumpstarting this process at the “COVID-19 TOPx Final Demos.” Data scientists, cancer researchers, cancer patients, and others can virtually attend to share feedback and perspective on key needs and challenges from potential end users of these solutions.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau) has been facilitating a 10-week long “COVID-19 TOPx” virtual technology development sprint for these 12 technology teams to develop their digital solutions. In that time, the teams have been working to find ways to ensure diagnostic data are transmitted efficiently, securely, and accurately to major stakeholders, including federal, state, local, and tribal government; employers; schools; consumers; and more.
