Building an integrated systems response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Bury

Using Health, Social Care, Benefits and Troubled Families data to assess vulnerability during the COVID-19 pandemic
Towards the end of March 2020 there was a recognition by Liverpool City Council and the NHS required a crisis identification system built in case there was unprecedented demand in the city caused by COVID 19. The aim was to link identifiable data to create a vulnerability index of individuals in case the prioritisation of food, prescription deliveries and economic support or care packages was required. The delegates will learn about the data journey Liverpool have taken to develop a comprehensive data management system for the National Troubled Families Programme that is now utilised for multiple purposes in both strategic and operational arenas. The session will reflect upon how the COVID-19 pandemic has provided opportunities for greater data sharing across partners, how on-going collaborations will provide a host of opportunities for analysing demand management data to become “pro-active” rather than “reactive” and the advancement of predictive analytics.

CoronaWatch: The Suffolk Covid-19 Data Story
Like many other local authorities, Suffolk needed to adapt and innovate to analyse Covid-19 data.
This session focuses on the development of Suffolk’s CoronaWatch products. We will dive into some of our intelligence products and explore: How pieced together different data and intelligence to improve our understanding of Covid-19 in Suffolk, how we have used tools such as Power BI and R to complement our traditional public health analysis, and how we have tried to manage the transition from ‘no data’ to ‘all data’ as part of our Covid-19 response. The CoronaWatch tools have enabled us to turn data into decisions, and evidence into actionable insight!
