HHS Releases HHS Protect Dashboard

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced an HHS Protect Dashboard displaying HHS Protect data.

At the beginning of the pandemic, it became clear that HHS needed a central way to make data collected by various operating divisions, including CDC, CMS, HRSA, and others, visible to first responders at federal, state, and local levels and the federal government needed to collect this data as fast as possible. To fulfill this need, HHS built HHS Protect, a secure data ecosystem powered by eight commercial technologies for sharing, parsing, housing, and accessing COVID-19 data and driven by four principles: transparency, sharing, privacy, and security. Through HHS Protect, key parties have access to hospital-specific data, like inpatient bed utilization, ICU bed utilization, percentage of inpatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients, and number of COVID-19 cases. Even beyond that, it also offers insight into the supply chains of large healthcare distributors. By integrating this data together into one system, we can help federal, state and local leaders make strategic decisions and maximize resources.
