COVID-19 TOPx Solutions Showcase
This virtual event will showcase digital products created through the COVID-19 TOPx Technology Development Sprint with input from leading government and industry experts. TOPx, modeled on The Opportunity Project (TOP), is an innovation program led by Census Open Innovation Labs at the U.S. Census Bureau. Through technology development sprints, TOPx engages government, technology experts, and communities to co-create digital products for the public using federal open data. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), in partnership with the Census Bureau, facilitated the TOPx technology to provide digital solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Twelve technology teams were selected from the HHS COVID-19 At-Anywhere Diagnostics Design-a-thon. These teams developed digital solutions to ensure COVID-19 diagnostic data are efficiently, securely, and accurately transmitted to key stakeholders, including federal, state, local, and tribal governments, patients, providers, employers, schools, consumers, and others.
The Solutions Showcase will feature live demonstrations of these digital products, lightning talks, and panel and interactive sessions as well as keynote speakers.
