An Open Health Data Approach That Just Works: Improving Our World Block by Block

Building healthy communities would most likely be achievable if one were starting from a blank canvass. The reality is that designing and sustaining healthy communities starts with a clear understanding of what you are dealing with in a real world context. This real life perspective can only be realized if data about the state and local governments were available as a benchmark to best understand what is going on and how best to approcah what you have learned.

Open data has been described as the innovation currency from which to best understand population health, increase collaboration, support research, and provide citizens with a clear understanding of health and human services conditions that need to be addressed in a clear context of where they work, live and play. This training webinar will take a look at the best practice approach to opening data through geographic information systems (GIS) via in depth case studies.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • Trends in opening health and human services data to the public

  • How GIS provides a better understanding of the problems you are looking to solve

  • How state and local governments are using GIS to open their data with amazing results

  • Ways to protecting information while remaining transparent

  • How to understand population health through location analytics
