CDC wants a cloud platform to centralize COVID-19 testing data

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is looking for a cloud platform that can better centralize data reported by COVID-19 testing facilities.

CDC hopes a centralized cloud solution would “ensure more complete reporting of testing data; help testing entities more efficiently report testing data, and; transmit these critical data to state and large local health departments promptly so that the health departments can plan and execute timely COVID-19 control and mitigation efforts."

Dave Nyczepir has this one.

And now, those CIOs are set up to build upon this uncharacteristic year. "[T]hese changes really give us opportunities to continue to innovate and challenge the norms and status quo," Roat said. "We did this this year — we cut through the bureaucracy." Billy Mitchell has more from Roat.
