Medical Data Pros Say They're 'Troubled' By Trump Admin's Change In Reporting COVID-19 Cases

Health records professionals are up in arms over a recent change by the Trump Administration in how to report COVID-19 data.

CNN reports public health advisers to the US government said in a letter that they are 'extremely concerned' and 'troubled' by the change in procedure.

The authors added retiring the older system jeopardized data integrity.
