A new interactive dashboard maps COVID-19 data from local to national levels. The COVID-19 Watcher, developed by College of Medicine students Benjamin Wissel and PJ Van Camp, tracks cases, deaths, testing volumes and rankings to inform people of outbreaks in their area. Released to the public on April 1, 2020, and published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA) on April 25, 2020, the tool has already reached thousands of users in almost every U.S. state and 18 countries.
In response to the global pandemic, LexisNexis Health Care embarked on an industry partnership to engage thought leaders and aggregate data to help our customers, public health officials, and health researchers gain additional insights for the purpose of combating COVID-19. This first phase focused on answering two primary questions: Which communities are most at-risk for poorer health outcomes due to COVID-19?, and Which communities are in most need of critical care resources to help combat the impact of COVID-19 in their region?
Resources for Healthcare Professionals: Interim Guidance
Staff of the Taubman Health Sciences Library, in collaboration with the Department of Learning Health Sciences, have assembled meta-analyses, literature syntheses, and clinical guidelines from multiple sources to make them accessible via a single search.
This interim guidance is based on what is currently known about COVID-19 and the transmission of other viral respiratory diseases. CDC will update this interim guidance as needed and as additional information becomes available.
