HealthStead (healthstead.org) now has socioeconomic indicators for every census tract in the United States. Also, the new “use my location” feature lets mobile users see indicators for their current location with just one click.
HealthStead connects primary care and public health professionals with neighborhood level data on education, income, crime, and other factors that have an outsize impact on health outcomes. The software’s intuitive and flexible interface provides a single-click risk assessment at a more granular level than city or county or zip code– in some cases, even block by block. HealthStead was developed by Adam Perzynski, PhD (co-Founder and CSO, Global Health Metrics), Eamon Johnson, PhD (co-Founder and CTO, Global Health Metrics), Sarah Shick, and Tynan Smith.
