The Cleveland Healthy Home Data Collaborative (CHHDC) is a new healthy housing data system. The initiative is grounded in neighborhood community engagement that enables physicians, public health officials, and the public to easily access collaborative, useful information to address health disparities—with a focus on asthma and lead poisoning. Geocoded housing data relevant to determinants of health is analyzed and prioritized to provide risk-stratified, place-based information. Value-added data from multi-sector sources is used for identifying lead-safe housing, determining patient risk for asthma, supporting public policy, and targeting public health programs.
This work was funded by the BUILD Health Challenge. BUILD and its communities apply bold, upstream, integrated, local, and data-driven (BUILD) approaches to improve health in communities that are adversely affected by upstream factors.
