MI Safe Start Map Enhancements

As the pandemic has evolved, new features of the disease symptoms, testing,
and tracking have evolved in importance. This project focuses on addressing
four new objectives:


1) Providing age and race structured analysis of the COVID-19 epidemiology
(e.g. case counts, incidence, case-fatality)
2) Enhancement of the COVID19-symptom hotspot dashboard for local/state
health officials that has different levels of granularity for different audiences
(e.g. general public, local/state health officials, and restricted county-level
access)
3) Integration of forecast modeling of COVID-19 into the MI Safe Start Map
dashboard
4) Providing help desk support for epidemiological questions on these new
features

 

Expected Outcome :

- New metrics of age and race-specific measures will be available on the private
(and perhaps public) MI Safe Start dashboard for display of daily, weekly,
monthly views
- New hot spot dashboard incorporated as a resource on the MI Safe Start
dashboard for display of daily, weekly, monthly views of the MI Symptom data
at an aggregate and individual level
- New forecasting models incorporated as a resource on the MI Safe Start
dashboard (private side) for display of weekly and monthly projections
- A simple to use database of vetted answers to recurring questions about the
epidemic indicators on the MI Safe Start Dashboard
