Tracking the health of people, places and planet.
RESPONDING TO THE INFORMATION NEEDS OF INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS
In light of the current coronavirus crisis, AppliedXL, a Newlab company, launched HealthXL. The online tool aims to provide context and data around COVID-19 cases and the pandemic’s broader impact on individuals and organizations. The dashboard leverages AI to auto generated content that will be shared across social channels, distributing accurate data and assisting in combating the spread of disinformation.
HealthXL will continually layer new data and news streams and build in learnings that will serve multiple stakeholders in the public and private sector—from the front lines with hospitals and patients, to businesses forced to transform and adapt during and far after the coronavirus is contained.
The dashboard's AI output is validated by subject matter experts to guarantee the quality of results. This effort is created in partnership with leading medical and health publication, STAT News, is designed to serve an audience of public health and healthcare professionals, medical device manufacturers, and government officials. It offers a sophisticated approach to track the broader impact of the virus. The tool will be made available through STATnews.com and health.appliedxl.com.
VERSION 0.1: TRACKING THE NUMBER OF CASES
Our immediate data science work is focused on mining public and private datasets, combining them into one online data dashboard and explorer. We are starting by aggregating data from The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at John Hopkins University, from the COVID Tracking Project and from USAFacts. We are also building new tools for other data scientists, researchers and technologists to more easily access these valuable datasets.
VERSION 0.2: HEALTHCARE HOTSPOTS
The dashboard will expand to highlight hotspots of potential health system failures or gaps in medical supply chains by collecting and correlating state-level data sources such as confirmed cases, population demographics, or measures of medical services capacities.
VERSION 0.3: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXPLORE NEXT?
Our vision is to create a comprehensive resource to understand the socio-economic impact of the current pandemic. You can join this effort by providing feedback, helping us prioritize datasets, and by sharing your insights.
