Data to Drive Decisions: Resources to Chart COVID’s Impact in Colorado
June 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
It is nearly impossible to understate the impact of COVID-19 on every facet of life in Colorado. In this webinar, CIVHC will look at three COVID-related analyses that helped inform different aspects of the pandemic as everyone worked together to predict the impact, minimize the risks, and continue to serve the health care needs of Coloradans.
• High Risk Populations: Early in the pandemic, data from the CO APCD provided insight into geographic areas with Coloradans at high risk of severe illness should they contract COVID, allowing for targeted intervention efforts and eventual vaccination planning.
• Impact of Elective Procedure Cessation: When the Executive Order declaring a temporary cessation for elective procedures went into effect, it was unclear what the impact might be on revenue to hospitals and other health care providers.
• Trends in Telehealth Utilization: Many health care services had to continue despite the virus, and providers of all specialties displayed remarkable agility and ingenuity as they pivoted to telehealth nearly overnight.
