The COVID-19 Vulnerability Index (CV19 Index)

The COVID-19 Vulnerability Index – What It Is

The CV19 Index is an open source, AI-based predictive model that identifies people who are likely to have a heightened vulnerability to severe complications from COVID-19 (commonly referred to as “The Coronavirus”).  The CV19 Index is intended to help hospitals, federal / state / local public health agencies and other healthcare organizations in their work to identify, plan for, respond to, and reduce the impact of COVID-19 in their communities. 

The COVID-19 Vulnerability Index – What It’s NOT

To be absolutely clear – the CV19 Index does NOT predict who will become infected with COVID-19 or geographic locations where the virus might spread.  It is meant to identify people with a heightened risk of severe complications should they become infected.
