With the primary missions of protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, the Department of Health and Human Services bore the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic. Its component agencies – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) – live on the front lines of public health.
Register for this on-demand webinar with Acting CIO Perryn Ashmore to hear about the department’s race for resiliency in the face of massive cyberattacks early in the pandemic. Also, see how HHS quickly pivoted from cyber defense to virus relief with the birth of a COVID-19 data gathering and analytics operation. The system, which takes in billions of crucial healthcare data elements from thousands of sources, creates access management systems to ensure privacy and security, and leverages machine-learning technologies to drive higher-value insights, will help pave the nation’s way out of the crisis as science races for a cure.
