Mathematica partnered with the National Association of Health Data Organizations in April 2020 to create the “COVID-19 Health Data Users Group.” The Data Users Group was developed to address the learning community needs related to the pandemic. Within each session, health data experts from various settings share their knowledge with group members and discuss experiences related to COVID-19.
