HHS Launches Coronavirus Data Hub
Last week, hospitals were directed to bypass the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network and report coronavirus-related information directly to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). More information on the shift of reporting is also available here. This week, HHS launched its Coronavirus Data Hub, which purports to report a more robust and comprehensive data set. The change has been met with skepticism and concern among various groups in the healthcare industry.
