Innovative Technology for Planning and Evaluation of Local Community Health

Wednesday, November 6, 2013: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
This panel showcases the innovative work of 4 communities that have developed innovative local data systems to identify populations and regions experiencing health disparities, inform development of community-based environmental and system interventions, and evaluate the impact of CTG-funded public health interventions. The presentations address use of GIS as a health strategy planning tool, aggregation and alignment of data sources, and simulation modeling to forecast health impacts.
Session Objectives: Demonstrate communities using innovative approaches and data to inform selection, implementation, and evaluation of public health interventions. Discuss data resources and accompanying technology available to communities for public health planning.
