Description: The Center for Health Workforce Studies, in conjunction with the New York State Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT), unveils New York’s new online Health Workforce Planning Data Guide. The data guide provides information on population demographics, health behaviors and outcomes, as well as the health care system and workforce through data visualization. The interactivity of the data guide allows users to tailor the information to their individual interests and to understand the data on multiple levels. This online data guide serves as a model for other states that are interested in developing one of their own. This webinar presents the visualization features of the data guide, and discusses best practices for initial development of the tool and for collecting and integrating data.
