New Administration, New COVID-19 Federal Datasets

Tune in for a Health Datapalooza Webinar featuring Health and Human Services data leader, hosted by CareSet

The Community Profile Report, a frequently updated national report detailing multiple data streams related to the COVID-19 pandemic, is transforming under the Biden Administration. Learn what this transformation means in relation to transparency of information to the public, and what to expect in data as the roll-out of the vaccines continues.

Originally broadcast on February 11, 2021 at 2:00 P.M. ET and featuring Kevin Duvall, Health and Human Services (HHS) Deputy Chief Data Officer and Amy Gleason, Data Strategy and Execution Workgroup Lead, United States Digital Services, in a panel led by Fred Trotter, CTO of CareSet.

Trotter led the discussion to examine:

  • Expectations on how the whole picture in data of the COVID-19 crisis is expected to shift under the new administration
  • What the new reporting approach will mean in terms of transparency, including its limits 
  • How new variants will be tracked
  • The overall new objectives for the Community Profile Report in terms of data capture and in context of vaccine rollouts

“This is our first opportunity to get a boots-on-the-ground look at what has changed in COVID-19 data tracking since the administration changed,” says Fred Trotter, CTO of CareSet. “I’m looking forward to digging in and understanding what additional transparency means and how HHS is tracking the vaccines.” 

The Community Profile Report, originally released December 18, 2020, is sourced from the central Federal database, which tracks COVID hospitalizations, testing, and cases on a region-specific level.
