Double Jeopardy--Pandemic and Health Disparities: Collaborative, Data-Driven Community Interventions and Innovation During Crisis

August 25, 2021

In health care, as in other industries, disaster often inspires innovation. By April 23, 2020, Dallas, Texas, had 2,763 cases of COVID-19 and 72 deaths. The hospital in-patient and ER were strained. To contain the spread of the virus in the community, the Parkland Health & Hospital System team, in partnership with PCCI, developed a multi-prong, technology-based solution. To date, over 500,000 upcoming clinical encounters have been prescreened for risk, resulting in relatively early detection and treatment of cases and decreasing potential exposure to the health system.
