May 2011

MCIC and two partners hope to receive funding from the Sprague foundation to help develop the technology and data infrastructure for a web based Chicago health atlas.  MCIC and its partners will work to build an atlas of de-identified electronic health records, demographic data, targeted health intervention strategies, and other public health and healthcare services data. This project will provide policy makers, health practitioners, community advocates, and the public at large with unparalleled insight into the health challenges facing their communities and the best strategies for mitigating these challenges.
