Community Partner: South Cumberland Health Network
The public health team partnered with the South Cumberland Health Network to create a reliable resource to analyze health disparities in the region.
Problem: A wide range of Tennessee health-related information is dispersed across the internet and not organized into one location. Due to the unorganized nature of the health-related information, some hospitals have become overwhelmed with patients due to lack of access.
Solution: The team collected and consolidated the data from various sources into a database which analyzes trends and presents its findings in an online interactive dashboard.
Impact: This project brought together Tennessee health information into one centralized location that will allow for problems to be identified and solutions to be created in response to the findings.
