Quang Tran, technical officer at PATH Vietnam, discusses efforts in Vietnam to improve health systems through the use of data visualizations and centralized health reporting systems, writing, “Data is at the heart of a good response. In Vietnam, CDC, PATH, and other partners are finding new ways to gather, store, and analyze data to improve epidemiologic intelligence during emergencies and beyond. Together, we are creating a single, centralized system that will help responders see more complete data, and see it better” (9/7).
