Try these two new resources for medical statistics and hospital information!
BING Health Maps
“Bing Health Maps is very straightforward to use - (1) Select a state and, (2) Select a Community Health Indicator.
The map will re-center on the respective state and color-code the counties within that state based on unit-based reporting.
You can select health indicators such as Birth Indicators (low birth weight, premature births, births to women under 18, etc.); Death Measures (homicide, lung cancer, stroke, etc.) or Health Risk Factors (obesity, smokers, high blood pressure, etc.). If the opacity doesn’t suit your fancy there’s a slider to increase or decrease it.
Through the overlaying of health data onto Bing Maps, the application allows users to get a complex perspective on specific areas of the US in terms of medical statistics. Bing Health Maps provides a way for health statistics related to location to be quickly and easily understood.”
Google Hospital Map
Find out information about hospitals for a certain location and filter them by various factors such as Heart Attack: 30-day mortality.
