Using 500 Cities Data to better assess hyper-local health needs

For their latest Community Health Needs Assessment, New York City Health + Hospitals wanted to explore health outcomes for census tracts and neighborhoods. However, their local health department didn't have the data they needed.

We worked with NYCHH to source and analyze the 500 Cities data for their specific indicators and areas of focus. We then estimated indicator values for NYCHH hospital service areas. Using the 500 Cities Data, NYCHH was able to identify gaps and priorities at the neighborhood and tract level, creating a much more engaging and insightful Community Health Needs Assessment.
