Essential Innovation: How New York City Agencies Connected & Collaborated for COVID Response

June 3, 2020
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

"The COVID-19 outbreak in New York City created an urgent need for massive quantities of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for emergency personnel, including masks, scrubs, face shields, and other assets. Multiple City agencies responded to the need by sourcing PPE through donations, purchases, and manufacturing partners. The NYC Mayor's Office of the CTO partnered with vetted expert tech volunteers to create a PPE Dashboard, a comprehensive asset tracker that brings together multiple spreadsheets daily to provide updated counts of PPE inventory, demand, and incoming supplies. Through connection and collaboration across agencies and with external technologists, in less than a week, the NYC CTO team created one unified resource for agencies to share data, gain insights, and report a complete picture of the City's preparedness to key decision-makers."
