COVID-19 Area Vulnerability Index
Prioritize resources and optimize care to fight COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed national and local health systems due to the increasing demand for health care services, especially in vulnerable communities. In an effort to identify local health care resources and COVID-19 risk factors, OptumServe developed a U.S. county-level COVID-19 Area Vulnerability Index (AVI).
The OptumServe COVID-19 AVI helps public health officials at federal, state and local levels better prepare for and manage health crises, including COVID-19, by providing comprehensive data to make fact-based decisions to protect the populations they serve.
