HealthLandscape is dedicated not only to data democratization and data visualization, but also to research related to health, health care and social determinants of health. We are actively:
Our new series, Geospatial Research Briefs, highlight these interests. These short papers will cover a variety of topics that are intended to demonstrate the power of geospatial analysis and tools for better understanding important issues related to healthcare. The research briefs will emphasize the use of publicly accessible datasets as well as data visualization and mapping tools, while focusing on the key areas of health disparities, population health, primary care, and value-based payment models.
