Healthcare providers now have a new reference for health indicators, thanks to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Called the Health Indicators Warehouse, the new service is a collection of about 1,200 health indicators from almost 200 data sources to support researchers, technology developers, and policymakers. Examples include:
- life expectancy
- disease incidence or prevalence, or other health states
- health behaviors
- health risk factors
- physical environments
- socioeconomic environments
- health care access, cost, quality, and use
