Medical Data Pros Say They're 'Troubled' By Trump Admin's Change In Reporting COVID-19 Cases
CNN reports public health advisers to the US government said in a letter that they are 'extremely concerned' and 'troubled' by the change in procedure.
The letter described hospitals as 'scrambling' to determine how to meet new daily COVID-19 reporting requirements to the DHHS.
The authors added retiring the older system jeopardized data integrity.
One doctor said the new system was marred by inconsistencies, rendering it 'almost impossible' to use for real-time decisions during the pandemic.
