As the globe continues to grapple with the coronavirus epidemic, we hear from an expert in frontline healthcare data – Jon Jackson.
The technology Jon and his company Dimagi have created has already helped during the Ebola crisis. During this podcast we explore how data can assist us today. Whether it is contact tracing, data collection, decision support, and information dissemination – Jon explains why this information can make a real difference but also why COVID-19 is very different from Ebola.
This podcast may help you, as the technology Jon is talking about isn’t just for national governments, but can be used by all frontline health professionals, as well as potentially businesses who want to assist during the global emergency. In fact, Dimagi has developed template applications to help organizations get started quickly and will be offering CommCare for free on these projects for the duration of the crisis. In addition, you’ll hear Jon provide pragmatic, practical advice on how to get technology working for you as quickly and efficiently as possible.
