Leading Through Change Starts with Data

We are facing an unprecedented public health crisis and government organizations at all levels are on the front lines trying to understand, track and mitigate the impact of this pandemic.

It's more important than ever to have access to timely, detailed, and trustworthy data to drive decisions related to infrastructure and resource planning as well as provide support to the citizens who need it most. As each region moves from an initial triage phase towards stabilization and recovery, they must leverage data to understand their past, inform their present and plan for their future.

Join us for this free, virtual event to hear how others have managed through difficult times and discuss what it means to Lead Through Change.

In times of substantial change, leaders need access to the most up-to-date and reliable information to guide decision-making, while also cultivating trust in their organization and the communities they serve. Amid the initial onset of this public health crisis, Tableau developed a mission to help the data community access, analyze, and stay informed in this rapidly changing environment.

While many organizations work to manage the spread of COVID-19, we recognize that for the foreseeable future different parts of the world will be moving through various stages of crisis to recovery, and they will need guidance on how to best address the issues that will emerge in this process. Together, Tableau and Salesforce will discuss how we are helping guide our customers through this time of change and how we plan to continue helping customers during those critical moments to come.

With the responsibility of serving more than 9 million veterans in the United States, and acting as the country's backup healthcare system, the Veterans Health Administration plays a critical role in being accountable for many who are impacted by the virus. The agency is responsible for managing the nation's stockpiles of PPE equipment and distributing them as necessary to the areas that are most in need.

With the virus moving through different regions in waves, understanding which VA facilities are most impacted and tracking the inventory and distribution of PPE equipment is vital. In this session, Amy will discuss how her team was able to provide around the clock updates on which facilities were hardest hit with an influx of patients and solve supply chain issues created in this COVID-19 environment by supporting logistics distribution across the entire organization.

365体育投注备用Now more than ever, regional organizations have a heightened responsibility to serve as an authoritative source of truth for their citizens. Serving 22 counties and 2.8 million people in Southwest Texas, STRAC is responsible for tracking all emergency operations related to the pandemic and delivering the most important figures to state leadership in order to drive informed, rapid decision making on what protocols should be put in place to ensure citizen safety. Additionally, the organization has streamlined the data collection and coordination between the region’s healthcare systems and EMS agencies to track emergency responses and patient flow to nearby hospitals, to avoid overwhelming individual facilities.

In times of uncertainty such as the one we’re in now with COVID-19, citizens look to government organizations for the facts and information. At the same time, it's important to get data into the hands of people who need to make informed decisions about citizen safety.

It’s important to embody best practices and create a responsible data strategy.
