Mapping Connected Health County by County
On November 10th, the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Connect2Health Task Force and the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau’s Office of Intergovernmental Affairs will jointly host a free webinar to further explain and explore the Connect2HealthFCC Task Force’s Mapping Broadband Health in America, available at https://www.fcc.gov/health/maps.
The web-based mapping platform, launched in August, enables and informs more efficient, data-driven decision making at the intersection of broadband and health. The Mapping Broadband Health in America platform allows users to visualize, intersect and analyze broadband and health data at the national, state and county levels – informing policy prescriptions and investment decisions.
Mapping Connected Health County by County
November 10, 2-3 p.m. EDT
This webinar will focus on how state and local government offices, agencies and other local community stakeholders can effectively use the Mapping Broadband Health in America platform. Key audiences for the webinar include federal, state and local agencies and offices that address health, connectivity, technology and/or rural development. For example, FCC encourages county health departments, public health officers and epidemiologists, broadband and technology officers, data analytics and GIS teams, and community health workers and strategists to participate.
The webinar will feature:
- An overview of the mapping platform, showcasing the broadband, health and rural “filters” that drive the functionality and place analytic power in the hands of local stakeholders;
- Step-by-step instructions and user scenarios tailored to how state and local entities can use the platform to drive broadband health efforts in their respective areas and communities;
- Information on how agency web developers and data experts can incorporate proprietary or public datasets of interest into the mapping platform – our so-called, “open integration” model; and
- An opportunity to pose questions about the broadband health mapping platform to Connect2HealthFCC experts and weigh in on the next generation of the tool.
Registration and other details about the webinar can be found at https://www.fcc.gov/news-events/events/2016/11/mapping-connected-health-county-county.
