Open Data Platforms for Community Health
Successful multi-sector data sharing hubs can leverage existing infrastructure to integrate new resources and adapt to novel use cases. This All In webinar featured two community data warehouses that continue to evolve to support community health improvement.
This collaborative is using a data warehouse that allows analysts to study service delivery and related outcomes to inform policy decisions, such as how distribution of food pantries in urban vs. rural areas correlates to health impact.
This collaborative is using a connected data warehouse that combines data from multiple sectors to create a more complete picture of the factors impacting the health of the county’s 1.2 million residents.
The New Mexico Community Data Collaborative is a statewide data warehouse compiling demographic, socioeconomic, health, and social determinant data at the neighborhood level.
The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center, in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department and other partners, built a multi-sector data warehouse that includes datasets related to social determinants of health.
