Citizens, Communities, and Open Data
Bradley Kreit on Citizens, Communities, and Open Data
What are the implications of open data and innovation on the health and well-being of our communities? Bradley Kreit, Healthy Horizons Program Co-Director, presents new ways to improve health and well-being as ecosystems of information move beyond medical records to include data about individual lifestyle choices and the public health of our cities.
Bradley Kreit at the Healthy Communities Data Summit on May 21, 2013 in San Francisco
The event coincided with the release of our Health Horizons Program’s 2012 Map of the Decade, Information Ecosystems for Well-Being: New Tools, New Connections, New Identities. The map helps visualize a world beyond big data—where the explosive growth of information can feel overwhelming—to imagine and understand the abundant value emerging from connected health information. Community organizers, public health officials, schools, and other community groups may use the map to navigate the new opportunities and challenges of abundant community-level health data.
