An Inside Look: Data Challenges Facing U.S. Federal Health Agencies in a Post-Covid World

Date: June 16, 2021 | 11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET

Government agencies face significant challenges in data sharing, storage and management. These issues have been exacerbated as a result of the COVID pandemic. To address this, Cerner Government Services and Government Business Council deployed a targeted survey to a variety of individuals in leadership roles across Federal agencies, particularly those immersed in information technology and the healthcare field. This research revealed opportunities to address these challenges.

During this one-hour COMPLIMENTARY webinar, we’ll reveal the sentiments and perceptions among government healthcare experts about the changing landscape of data sharing and management.

  • Learn how agencies are using, storing, and sharing their data.
  • Assess their perceptions, attitudes, and experiences of data sharing and service provision.
  • Understand the myriad of challenges going into 2021, including legacy technology, data issues, and workforce inefficiencies.
  • Examine the emerging issues and opportunities.

Join us to explore how government healthcare agencies are likely to prioritize using data more flexibly to improve constituent experiences, as well as invest in emerging technologies and specialized personnel.
