MPH Helps Indiana Fight COVID-19 with Data
In a time of uncertainty and slow-down for some, MPH has increased work production, providing data that is driving decision making for the State of Indiana’s COVID-19 response. Whether supporting dashboards, studies or collaborative initiatives, MPH continues to bring #DataToThePeople.
“Because of our existing relationships with state agencies and external organizations, MPH has been able to foster collaboration and meaningful engagement from early on in the COVID-19 response,” said Josh Martin, Indiana Chief Data Officer and MPH Director. “This has allowed for quicker turn-around times on data requests and visualizations that would have taken much longer without an existing structure in place.”
Examples of our work include publishing COVID-19-specific datasets on the Indiana Data Hub, supporting the ISDH COVID-19 dashboards at coronavirus.IN.gov and support for Regenstrief’s hospital-centric response dashboards.
"The work MPH has put into building out the State’s data infrastructure has allowed us and our partners to mobilize quickly in response to COVID-19 and use data to drive our decisions in a meaningful way,” said Martin. “The great thing is that this agile model can be used in multiple future scenarios, including guiding the State to its new normal.”
