Join us for an introduction to Memorial Health’s free online data platform through Conduent Community Health Solutions. Public health data is often decentralized and difficult to find. This platform provides a central location for demographics and rankings of more than 100 health and socioeconomic indicators for Sangamon, Logan, Macon, Morgan and Christian counties. It also includes mapping and visualization tools, a database of evidenced-based practices, and other valuable features. Indicators are updated regularly so that the data is the latest available. Indicators are available in seven categories: health, economy, education, environment, public safety, social environment and transportation. This data may help organizations with goal setting, need assessments, grant writing and other work.
