New report highlights Oregon’s COVID-19 data reporting
A new report from Resolve to Save Lives, a global health initiative focused on cardiovascular disease and epidemic prevention, spotlights Oregon’s COVID-19 data collection and sharing.
In July, Resolve to Save Lives released a review on the status of publicly available state-level COVID-19 information, along with the 15 key indicators all states should report on. Last month, a second review of states’ reporting on these essential indicators was published.
The analysis highlights Oregon for having one of the nation’s top-performing state-level dashboards, providing robust data for public consumption. Oregon is also featured as one of few states to provide comprehensive information on whether new cases are linked to existing cases, as well as one of four states that report data on mask use.
You can download the report, Tracking COVID-19 in the United States: Progress and Opportunities, to learn more. Check out OHA’s COVID-19 Data Dashboards here.
