Earlier this year, the Obama Administration started the Community Health Data Initiative, a public-private effort to help Americans understand health and health care performance in their communities. US Department of Health and Human Services agreed to provide to the public free of charge and without any intellectual property constraint, data on health care, health and determinants of health performance at the national, state, and county levels. GE is one of a growing array of technology companies, researchers, health advocates, employers, media, consumer advocates, marketers, providers, etc., recruited to help identify the uses of this data that would do the most to raise awareness of health performance, help motivate civic leaders and citizens to improve performance, and help improvers do the improving. This application is part of the Community Health Data Initiative. It enables users to easily compare indicators of community health across the United States.
This application is based on data from County Health Rankings, an interactive website providing access to 50 state reports with rankings of each county within each state according to its health outcomes and health determinants. The County Health Rankings are a key component of the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) project. MATCH is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
