Using administrative data to support Ontario’s COVID-19 response
Mar 23, 2022
1:00PM to 2:00PM
The unprecedented need for timely, relevant analytics presented challenges to many health systems. ICES — an independent not-for-profit research institute that houses Ontario’s administrative health data — responded to this challenge by supporting decision-makers with near real-time data and analytics to help inform both COVID-19 testing and vaccination roll-out. This webinar will provide an overview of some of these reports and analytics and describe their impact upon COVID-19 testing and vaccination policy and practice in Ontario.
