Health Tracking

From Data to Decision-Making

CDC’s National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network is a powerful tool that helps users visualize health and environmental data to better understand, communicate and act on public health issues. Join this webinar to learn how Minnesota and Washington, two states with strong tracking programs, have effectively integrated biomonitoring data into the tracking portal. What are best ways to collect this data, work with the portal and visualize the results? And how did these states work with environmental health system partners to optimize this process?

NEHA Webinar: Data-Use and Septic Systems

The Marion County Public Health Department in Indianapolis, IN recently completed a septic system survey of homes to identify issues homeowners may be having with their systems.  The information gained from the surveys, as well as septic repair permit data, soil geography, and well log information, were used to conduct analyses to determine the factors associated with septic failures and septic issues in Marion County.  Using geographic information system (GIS) technology, areas of Marion County with high risk factors were identified to help drive future public health interventions such as

Data Integration to Inform Environmental Health

Integrating large quantities of data from multiple, disparate sources can create new opportunities to understand complex environmental health questions. However, combining new types and larger quantities of data to inform a specific decision presents many new challenges. For example, investigators must develop methods to reliably integrate data from designed experiments with data re-purposed from other uses, such as electronic health records, geo-spatial data sets, and crowd-based sources.
