About the Project

Description

Building a website that helps facilities manage capacity for COVID-19 patients. We have a UI that gathers information from healthcare workers who can verify details about facilities equipped to handle COVID-19 patients. This includes details like: address, phone number, bed count, available capacity, and testing capabilities. Right now we need input from nurses and doctors about what type of capacity they are able to handle and number of cases.

How far along is it

Web application displaying >7,500 facilities.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

We are seeking the following people:

🧙‍♂️ Product Design Wizard: Our project right now consists of a single webpage with views to add and view medical facilities. This site needs to be simple to use, but powerful enough to enable healthcare workers and public officials to make decisions. The ideal volunteer has experience working with consumer web applications and/or crowdsourced data and the unique challenges and opportunities posed.

👩‍💻 Data Guru: Do you dream in numbers? Does a poorly defined table header make you sick to your stomach? Do conflicting statistics and discrepancies make you eager for a challenge? Welcome to healthcare. We need someone to manage our growing database of medical facilities. We have 7,500 so far, and plan to double that in the coming weeks as we collect data on temporary facilities.

🙋‍♂️ Volunteer(s): Do you want to help with COVID, but you're not sure how? We need people to review the community submissions and talk to our users. You can help us find and verify temporary facilities. You can talk to hospital workers about how to best coordinate care between the converted Marriott and the public hospital system. No experience needed, but willingness to move quickly is required.

If you are or know a healthcare worker who can verify details about facilities equipped to handle COVID-19 patients. This includes details like: address, phone number, bed count, available capacity, and testing capabilities.
