How the "Clusterbuster" app provides actionable information to 300 health professionals
Presented by: Sjoerd Wieringa
In this talk we want to give an overview of what it took to create the Clusterbuster from an organizational perspective. We will go into detail on how we got from an abstract question to an application that is user-friendly, safe, and valuable. Furthermore, we will offer a glimpse of what is yet to come, and where we see possibilities to turbocharge a more data-driven public policy approach.
How to build a production shiny app within the context of public health governance.
Presented by: Job Spijker
This presentation goes into the more technical details about the production environment of the Clusterbuster application. We will show how we deployed the application, how we ensured security and mitigated the risks in case of a security breach, and how we organized our code for maintainability and refactoring.
Sjoerd Wieringa: As the son of two healthcare professionals, with a background in Public Administration, and a passion for technology, it is no surprise that Sjoerd Wierenga now works at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment leading a team of highly skilled Data Scientists that created an application to support the battle against COVID-19. After having worked as a healthcare manager for several years, he decided he wanted to learn how to program. Which he has been doing now since 2016 in different capacities.
