By bringing together data from multiple sources in a structured way, public health officials can fill gaps when one data source is weak or see nuanced insights that might otherwise go unnoticed. Data integration allows for analysis that makes it easier to act on data. For instance, plots that show trends across wastewater and clinical data and risk scores that show where to prioritize resources can serve as justification for decisions. To be successful, integration of wastewater and public health data should be timely, consistent, disseminated broadly, and enable public officials to make more informed decisions.
