Description

The Program on Health Workforce Research and Policy at UNC’s Sheps Center for Health Services Research recently developed two tools to query and visualize health workforce data. One tool visualizes county-level data on 200,000 licensed health professionals across 19 health professions in North Carolina. The other tool describes the migration of residents in training and actively practicing physicians between states. This webinar demonstrates both tools, discusses the considerations that went into their design, and explores how these data can be used to help shape health policy.
