CA Health Data Project Featured at Code for America Summit Breakout Session

Watch this 2015 Code for America Summit Breakout Session featuring CHCF’s Andy Krackov and our Sacramento Health Ambassador Joel Riphagen as they discuss how to better leverage data to push for social change.

The panel also looked into how local governments can harness data to achieve social impact — e.g. raising public awareness of issues, informing policy decisions, and curbing unhealthy behaviors.

For years, PDF reports have been the standard way governments communicate data. Now, a number of California communities are employing new methods to translate and engage communities with health data. Watch this discussion about how we can all better leverage data to push for social change.

And in case you missed it, Government Technology featured the California Health Data project and our asthma data visualization app as one of the 4 Key Takeaways from the Code for America 2015 Summit alongside Airbnb, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and the announcement of a new Federal Data Secretary!
