Conquering COVID-19 will take an effort of global proportions. It is every citizen of the world’s responsibility to be smart, follow best practice and prioritize our personal wellbeing. A powerful tool in flattening the curve is contact tracing, highlighting how important data is exterminating the coronavirus pandemic threat.
Bringing 25 years of data collection expertise in higher education institutions, research companies and health organizations, Headway in Research announced accelerated support for contact tracing initiatives to fight COVID-19.
Headway in Research will deploy a national data collection workforce tasked with aiding contact tracing at large. The division of Headway Workforce Solutions’ sweet spot follows the lead of the CDC. The Center for Disease Control views contact tracing as, “a core disease control measure employed by local and state health department personnel for decades.
J.P. Sakey, Executive Chairman of Headway Workforce Solutions stated, “This initiative builds on Headway’s already expansive survey research capabilities as demonstrated with over two decades of experience in field data collection staffing. In the past several years, Headway has staffed over 17,000 data collectors, field interviewers, survey researchers, research assistants, telephone interviewers/call center staff, phlebotomists, and more. Headway staffs and payrolls research workers in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Our company in supporting survey research clients has provided research personnel in 95% of all US zip codes.”
It will take a village to defeat this pandemic, and Pandemic Tech like contact tracing will be central to victory.
