Using Online Surveillance Tools for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention
A discussion and demonstration for the use of the National Cardiovascular Disease Surveillance System, Million Hearts Dashboard and CDC Chronic Disease GIS Exchange. View data at national and state-level related to key health indicators, including data for cardiovascular disease, risk factors, and biomarkers. Create county-level maps for nine different cardiovascular disease outcomes by race/ethnicity, gender, and age group; as well as social determinants of health related to cardiovascular diseases. Compare clinical quality measures by different geographic areas, including state, regional, and national averages as well as generate reports for targeted regions of interest and view histograms to see the distribution of data displayed on a map. This presentation was originally presented at the AHA Epidemiology and Prevention / Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health 2015 Scientific Sessions.
