Richland County Public Health Continues to Make Data FAIR

Tags: , , ,


Richland County Public Health has received funding from the GMR for a second year to continue its project to make important public health data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable). Last year, Richland County Public Health received funding to pull together, clean, and make available raw public health data from multiple health assessments. This year, Richland County Public Health will take the raw data and establish and sustain an interactive web tool for librarians and local health professionals to access FAIR local community health assessment data.

The interactive and user-friendly web interface embedded onto the Richland Public Health website will support health care professionals, public health professionals, and librarians who do not have analytical or financial support to produce meaningful and interpretable results from raw, local-level health data. Funding for this proposal will also provide this initiative the opportunity to fully complete the achievement of making county-level health data FAIR to health professionals and librarians in the North Central Ohio area.
