Health Epidemic Tracker

Article

Using Amenity’s suite of NLP solutions, we created a Health Epidemic Tracker that analyzes earnings call transcripts to assess how public health outbreaks like the coronavirus epidemic affect business operations and economic conditions.

We provide data in the table below that includes analyst questions and management commentary in prepared remarks and answers that relates to public health concerns. The digest provided extends back to 20 January and will be updated regularly during throughout the current public health emergency stemming from the coronavirus outbreak.

The underlying data is derived from Amenity’s proprietary risk monitoring model, part of which focuses on health-related risks. As a methodological note to readers, some commentary attributable to management may appear tangential but are answers extracted because they are offered in response to analyst questions related to health epidemics. A full set of associated metadata related to companies, sectors, speakers, and our model taxonomy is available upon request.
