As understanding of COVID-19 symptomology increases, Cotiviti is continuously updating our COVID-19 Outbreak Tracker to maintain accurate forecasts of potential hot spots. In a new interview with HIMSS TV, Cotiviti CEO Emad Rizk, M.D., discusses the practical applications of the tracker and how it has evolved based on new information as the pandemic progresses.
Watch the interview as Dr. Rizk explains how the Outbreak Tracker:
- Supports payers and providers by tracking new information, such as emerging COVID-19 symptoms and comorbidities, that can shed light on the susceptibility of certain populations
- Opens the door for more targeted and personalized therapeutic interventions through data interoperability
- Correlates other diseases and hospitalizations with COVID-19 by tracking leading indicators at both pre- and post-diagnosis levels
