As a first step towards design of decision support, we carried out a workshop to understand more about (i) the system for distributing and administering vaccine and (ii) stakeholder needs. At the workshop, we asked the participants structured questions to help us understand:
– Roles, responsibilities and goals involved organisation has that influence or are influenced by the distribution of vaccine
– Information needs, metrics needed to make system state visible and improve its management.
– Concerns and uncertainties relating to vaccine distribution
From the workshop findings, we will identify challenges to decision-making that could be solved by parameters that can form part of a «dashboard» to inform decisions about vaccine distribution.
Hossein Baharmand will talk about the CONTRA project at the upcoming YRN event. The event is organized by Akademiet for yngre forskere and UiAdoc. It will be held on September 25th, 2020 in Teateret, Kristiansand. The title of Baharmand’s presentation is “Distribution of COVID19 Vaccine: a decision support system.”
The CONTRA project project started officially on 19 June 2020. The project will last for 18 months (December 2021). The objective of the project is to develop a decision support system (DSS) for public health authorities. The DSS will contribute to distributing the COVID19 vaccine effectively, efficiently, sustainably, and fairly inside countries.
