Why states need clear, accurate data to move forward in vaccine distribution

By Annabell Lee

It has been quite the year for elected leaders across the US.

On top of leading during a pandemic, they have been tasked with recruiting, registering, and administering vaccines with limited time and resources to an anxious population.. Add in the complexity of new vaccines and virus strains, and even states who thought they had solved the problem are scratching their heads.

It is increasingly important that states are capturing data that could potentially help the public and state officials be more informed, as well as the vaccination development process. That is why they need to leverage the power of AI and computing to do the work for them.

What are three key insights that must be captured during the vaccine rollout process?

  1. Vaccination coverage metrics
  2. Post vaccine health and safety
  3. Inventory and demand forecasts

With the added complexity of new vaccines, it is imperative that states are tracking side effects, the different scheduling based on the type of vaccine, and other important data points needed in order to properly allocate the vaccine and reach herd immunity.

How can states manage all this data to paint a coherent picture?

As Fortune Magazine noted with regard to COVID-19, "... the best tool at our disposal is machine learning."

Backed by powerful computing technology that leverages the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, Cardinality’s solution can pinpoint and fill in the gaps of vaccine management to maximize efficiency.
