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.
The HealthyMomsHRA team, led by GHM Chief Scientist Adam Perzynski, received an honorable mention award at the first Cleveland Medical Hackathon this weekend. The HealthyMoms health risk assessment application was built from concept to working prototype during the hackathon. Team members were Meaghan Fenelon, Eamon Johnson, Sarah Shick, and Tynan Smith.
