Free Webinar: Mapping Connected Health County by County
Posted by Hannah Sinemus on November 4th, 2016
Posted in: Education, Health Professionals, Outreach, Technology
When: November 10, 2-3 PM ET Details and Registration
Sponsored by the Connect2HealthFCC Task Force and the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau’s Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, this webinar will focus on how state and local government offices, agencies and other local community stakeholders can effectively use the Mapping Broadband Health in America platform. The web-based mapping platform, launched in August, enables and informs more efficient, data-driven decision making at the intersection of broadband and health. The Mapping Broadband Health in America platform allows users to visualize, intersect and analyze broadband and health data at the national, state and county levels – informing policy prescriptions and investment decisions.
Key audiences for the webinar include federal, state and local agencies and offices that address health, connectivity, technology and/or rural development: for example, we encourage county health departments, public health officers and epidemiologists, broadband and technology officers, data analytics and GIS teams, and community health workers and strategists to participate.
The webinar will feature:
- An overview of the mapping platform, showcasing the broadband, health and rural “filters” that drive the functionality and place analytic power in the hands of local stakeholders;
- Step-by-step instructions and user scenarios tailored to how state and local entities can use the platform to drive broadband health efforts in their respective areas and communities;
- Information on how agency web developers and data experts can incorporate proprietary or public datasets of interest into the mapping platform – our so-called, “open integration” model; and
- An opportunity to pose questions about the broadband health mapping platform to Connect2HealthFCC experts and weigh in on the next generation of the tool.
