North Carolina Community Health Information Portal
Insights through the geo-location of data
The North Carolina Community Health Information Portal (NC-HIP) is a web-based application designed to provide new insights from large public and private databases. The tool is the result of a collaborative effort between CCNC, Health Landscapes, Inc., the NC Institute for Public Health and the Robert Graham Center of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The effort is federally funded through the Community Care of Southern Piedmont Beacon Community.
The site is designed to graphically geo-locate information from health and demographic databases to help identify trends and aid the development of appropriate interventions. For example, overlaying data on access to health care services with disease trends may provide insight into what types of populations and locations may be underserved for specific services.
CCNC’s aim is to give doctors, public health workers and policymakers a novel and robust tool for responding to the health needs of the community. By revealing the interaction between disease, public health, demographics and access to care, NC-HIP can help in optimal allocation of scarce health care resources.
Data used by the tool includes:
- U.S. Census Bureau
- DHHS Health Indicators Warehouse
- Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Chronic Conditions Warehouse
- Institute of Medicine
- Robert Wood Johnson Health Indicators
- Healthy People 2020 and Healthy NC 2020 Indicators
- Medicaid claims
- CCNC chart review measures
