We’re proud to be a part of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition, a private-sector led response that brings together healthcare organizations, technology firms, nonprofits, academia, and startups to preserve the healthcare delivery system and help protect U.S. populations. Our team collaborated on the development of a paper focused on Preparing Supply Chain Operations for the Next Phase of the COVID-19 Response. We’re committed to using our knowledge and expertise to provide as much pro-bono work as we can to help during this time.
We’re working to identify effective treatments for COVID-19 patient care. Members are using a common language and approach to scan their patient data for positive trends, answering questions such as “which treatments are working for which cohorts.” By federating the results, we can use large-scale analytics to learn in real time.
We’re working to increase the supply of critical equipment by building existing capacity, alternative sourcing, and advanced manufacturing solutions. For example, we’ve identified methods for sterilization and reuse of N95 masks to extend product life and have issued guidance for 3D printing of PPE. The coalition’s Demand Allocation model helps state and county leaders track outbreaks and predict demand for PPE.
