Online tool helps track health data at community level

The Washington Tracking Network’s Community Report tool makes it easier to understand the health of your community. The new tool lets you access all the available health measures for a given area, rather than having to select your region on each health measure. This will mean less time wading through data, making it easier to select all the measures you want to know about.

In January the state Department of Health launched a limited version of the Community Report tool, which had download-only capabilities. The newly released full version adds Tableau dashboard visualizations that are ready for use in publications and presentations, or for just understanding the data more easily.
