Connecting Data Across Sectors to Address Cardiovascular Disease

The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) is forming the Allegheny Data Sharing Alliance for Health—a connected data warehouse that combines data from multiple sectors to create a more complete picture of the factors impacting the cardiovascular health of the county’s 1.2 million residents. The collaboration will merge existing data sets from five sectors: public health, human services, economic development, healthcare, and transportation. Once amassed, the data will be exported to a modeling platform, the Framework for Reconstructing Epidemic Dynamics (FRED). Ultimately, a geographically accurate model of the complex distribution of cardiovascular disease risk factors in the county will enable the community to test the potential impact of various interventions.
