COVID-19 Actions and Initiatives
IDS International and Clear Outcomes are looking to help with the COVID-19 crisis any way we can. The following initiatives leverage our data and technology capabilities to measure the effectiveness of policies on behaviors, from washing hands to staying at home. Our data and analysis is made available to help decision makers improve the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our latest analysis can be found at the bottom of this page.
To better understand if our current behaviors and habits are assisting in flattening the curve, we have conducted two national surveys.
National Behavioral Survey #1 April 6 2020: Analysis
National Behavioral Survey #2 April 20 2020: Analysis
National Behavioral Survey #3 May 11 2020: Analysis
As part of our international effort, we have conducted two surveys in cooperation with the Ghana Medical Association to evaluate healthcare worker Access to Personal Protective Equipment, COVID-19 Triage and Service Continuity, and COVID-19 Testing and Contact Tracing in Ghana.
Ongoing Data Collection
We invite you to participate and take our short 5-minute COVID-19 Flattening the Curve Survey for the United States. Results will be shared with decision-makers.
See our interactive COVID-19 US Maps with data on your state for contact tracing, rapid testing, and antibody testing.
What’s your COVID-19 Safety Score?
Our COVID-19 Safety Score Quiz, designed for social media distribution, has a dual purpose of collecting behavioral data and helping individuals find out how well they are protecting themselves from COVID-19. IDS and Clear Outcomes enlisted medical and public health experts to develop a rating system based on CDC and WHO guidelines for best practices. The quiz also invites optional participation in follow-up surveys to track correlations behaviors, testing, and infection. Take the Quiz:
