Media across Indiana and beyond use Regenstrief and partners COVID-19 dashboard for pandemic information

Media across Indiana and beyond use Regenstrief and partners COVID-19 dashboard for pandemic information

The Regenstrief and partners COVID-19 dashboard has become a valuable tool for media covering the pandemic. Dozens of newspapers, TV stations and other outlets across Indiana and stretching into adjoining states regularly use the dashboard data in their reporting.

News outlets that have cited the dashboard include the Indianapolis Star, the Chicago Tribune, CBS Chicago, WAVE 3 News in Louisville and WTHR and FOX59 in Indianapolis, among many others.

The dashboard displays information on COVID-19-related emergency department visits, hospital stays, comorbidities and more and presents trends in the data. The information is complementary to the Indiana State Department of Health website and provides a wider perspective of the impact of the virus on Hoosiers.

The data-sharing initiative is made possible by a partnership among Regenstrief Institute, the State Department of Health, Indiana Family Social Services Administration, Indiana Management Performance Hub, Indiana Health Information Exchange, Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI and Indiana University School of Medicine.

Regenstrief faculty involved in this data-sharing project include President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Embí, M.D.; Vice President of Data and Analytics Shaun Grannis, M.D., M.S.; Director of Public Health Informatics Brian Dixon, PHD, MPA; and Research Scientist Nir Menachemi, PhD, MPH.
