According to Fierce Healthcare, during Reuters’ Digital Health 2021 virtual event, Alisahah Cole, M.D., system vice president of population health innovation and policy at CommonSpirit Health, said that COVID-19 placed a clear strain on the health system’s infrastructure, particularly when it came to public health agencies’ ability to collect and analyze patient data from a wealth of different sources.
