Episode 20: Interview with Jorge Caballero MD on the COVID Testing Challenge

Do you know where to go for a COVID-19 test when you need it? In this episode we speak to Dr, Jorge Caballero, Clinical Instructor of Anesthesia at Stanford Medical School, and co-founder of Coders Against Covid. 

Dr. Caballero talks to us about the testing and data collection accessibilities and capabilities during pandemic times, and how issues such as testing types, scheduling and administrative burden impact communities of color.    We learn what the terms Testing Deserts and Pool Testing mean, and learn about the current flow of reportable testing data during the current administration.

We also learn about Dr. Caballero's work with the website,
FindCovidTesting.com that helps you locate your nearest testing facility.
