This week, Disaster Tech and the Crisis Technologies Innovation Lab, a partnership between the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering and Indiana University's University Information Technology Services, has been awarded a $2.3 million contract from the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center to create data science capabilities that can enhance patient care for COVID-19 and provide better responses to disasters.
The past decades have demonstrated that performance science, data science, and communications technologies can provide critical improvements in processes and services with the incorporation of good data, thoughtful analytics, a human-centered approach, and governance structures that permit change. Yet, little change has been implemented. This project aims to bring desperately needed change to the industry with the convergence of leaders in academia, the private and public sectors.
