Track: Hospitals and Health Systems
Authors: Jene Grandmont
This analysis reports on patients and the community in which they live, leveraging access to population-based big data and geospatial technologies, allowing us to understand the social & environmental influences on the health of a physicianís patient panel. As patient vital signs provide a biometric snapshot of an individualís health status, community vital signs from aggregated population health data and information collected directly from patients provide an environmental health perspective.
