The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on nearly every aspect of our society. The right data management solutions are critical in developing a response plan to the virus. One of the most important challenges in the process is the collection of data from patients, physicians and other sources. Companies that have been impacted by COVID-19 directly or by restrictions put in place by the coronavirus pandemic can benefit from the efforts made to collect data on this dangerous disease.
In a Washington Post article, Mark Zuckerberg explains the value of data collection in managing COVID-19 and assigning resources to the areas in which they are needed most. The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has also highlighted the importance of data collection in monitoring the spread of the coronavirus and providing actionable information for decision makers.
Key pain points for COVID-19 data collection include the following:
Some of the most important elements in data collection for the coronavirus pandemic include the following activities:
Healthcare systems who have traditionally required patients to fill out forms manually are now finding that electronic forms are the most practical solutions for linking data directly to the samples and tests collected during the screening process. Our partner, Formstack, has been key in digitizing forms with HIPAA-compliant data for healthcare, nonprofit and government agencies to support the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic response. This article shows how Sling Health, Guthrie, and Mercy Healthcare providers implemented the Formstack solutions.
Finding ways to address pain points for data collection is essential to the success of the efforts currently underway to combat COVID-19.
In nearly all these cases, automating the processes and moving to electronic forms and authorizations can address the pain points currently being experienced in some areas of the healthcare industry.
Healthcare providers have created several forms designed specifically to collect the most accurate data from patients and healthcare workers, including the Suspected COVID-19 Patient Intake Form and the General Patient Intake Form. The COVID-19 Self-Declaration Form is intended to provide authorization for monitoring and tracking coronavirus cases within your system. E-signature tools available from Formstack allow faster verification of user identity in a HIPAA-compliant way.
Salesforce is another important tool not only for the healthcare industry but for companies across the United States that have experienced issues caused by the coronavirus. Because the Salesforce platform is cloud-based, it can accommodate inbound requests and can manage self-service resources to make it much easier to share accurate information. This can provide start-to-finish 360-degree support for patients from initial inbound requests to treatment and continuing education and support for their care requirements.
During the current pandemic, Salesforce has been used to scale response efforts for healthcare organizations and to assist companies in managing issues arising from the COVID-19 emergency situation.
The right data connections do not happen by accident. There is a lot of hard work that goes into planning, implementing, and updating processes to build trust in the data especially when it comes to data that impacts people’s lives. For Salesforce, an experienced, high-quality Salesforce Administrator would ensure data processes are implemented and there is strong trust in the information.
