CHIP has a robust COVID-19 research agenda, from the landmark first publication in January 2020 establishing pandemic transmissibility, to disease forecasting, participatory surveillance, and reimagining health IT for biosurveillance.

The Boston Children's Hospital Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) is a multidisciplinary applied research and education program. One area of focus is disease surveillance of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our faculty have built machine learning programs using predictive algorithms to forecast COVID-19 outbreaks.
