The global pandemic of COVID-19 has evidenced how unprepared is our healthcare systems around the world
Although there are multiple challenges associated with COVID-19, these are the high-level concerns related to the critical role of health data:
- Lack of integrated, accurate real-time systems for tracing large populations at various stages of infection.
- Limited ability to efficiently monitor and verify vaccination records in emerging economies.
- Vaccination certificates for travelers and employees can easily be forged or copied.
- Limited ability to certify accurate treatment data to allow for safe international travel.
- Misinformation spreading via social media platforms of incorrect health safety measures.
- Politicizing of pandemic response and global inequalities in allocating related health resources like vaccines.
