Michael Chow (Administrator) CHIME: COVID-19 Hospital Impact Model for Epidemics Update #1

Chime is officially launched! See this tweet, and accompanying blog post for more details. The team is now focused on two things:

  1. implementing features requested by government and medical system stakeholders
  2. ensuring we can scale to support the traffic coming in

Help needed

In order to ensure the CHIME team can focus on modeling and interacting with stakeholders, we're looking for help filling the following roles:

  • Project / product management: help with organizing the project. Help make sure that work around explaining and improving the CHIME dashboard is well organized. Help us document the project so volunteers can contribute.
  • Devops: help ensure that the dashboard can handle the increase in traffic. Currently we are running on Heroku, but may switch to Linode, since they have provided free resources.
