Jose Arrieta, former chief information officer at the Department of Health and Human Services, said the use of a cloud platform from Oracle has helped HHS enhance tracking of clinical trials of potential vaccines for COVID-19, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

“There are 340 million people that need to get vaccinated in this country, and we know not all of them will get vaccinated,“ Arrieta said Wednesday at ACT-IAC's Reimagine Nation ELC 2020. “And we still need to have people volunteer for clinical trials, but there was no mechanism to actually reach those people directly.“

With the cloud-based Oracle Health Management System, digital identifiers are being used to monitor patients who have received treatments for the coronavirus as part of clinical trials even after they were discharged from hospitals.
