Analyzing Health Disparities in Nashville

IM Nashville was developed by Vertices to promote collaboration between academic and community partners for improving the health status and eliminating health disparities among the residents of Nashville/Davidson County in Tennessee. The portal provides access to interactive public health informatics and geographic information systems (GIS) mappings resources for the area. Community members and researchers can assess local health needs, examine health within the context of the natural, built, and social environments, and develop, implement, and evaluate the outcomes of targeted interventions. Users can look at different impacts at county and sub-county level and create charts and graphs to display data from the site.
