‘The federal government will facilitate evidence-based decision-making through focused data-based projects,’ the plan states. ‘In addition, critical response activities such as workforce mobilization and vaccination appointment scheduling may require new technology solutions. The federal government will provide technical support to ensure that these systems meet mission critical requirements to support a robust response.’…” Read the full article here.
