FEATURED CASE STUDY

Harnessing Cloud-scale COVID-19 Data Speeds Hope, Informs Public Healthcare

As the extraordinary, rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic took hold in the United States, one of the first regions to feel its devastating toll was also one of the first to seek solid strategies to manage disease transmission and slow infection rates. With no time to lose and everything at stake, this state’s heavily burdened Department of Health prioritized development of an innovative, tactical COVID-19 action response – employing technology to prevent countless deaths, lessen the strain on hospitals, enable contact tracing, and reduce economic shocks.

In collaboration with Microsoft and the state health department, BlueGranite – a Microsoft Gold partner, employed its Data and AI proficiency to help speed response tools into existence. Working together, we quickly facilitated a plan of action – clarifying technology goals around the region’s pandemic response – then embarked on a full-scale implementation effort.
