Local officials and hospitals announce HealthyDane.org website

Posted:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County officials and hospital representatives announced a new website designed to provide community organizations and the public with health and population data Tuesday.
 
HealthyDane.org was the result of collaboration between Meriter Hospital, St. Mary's Hospital, Stoughton Hospital, UW Hospital and Clinics and Public Health-Madison & Dane County. Working together, they've devoted two years to the website.
 
Healthy Communities Institute (HCI) created the site in collaboration with the Healthy Dane partner organizations. HCI can access and synthesize public data to create an up-to-date snap shot of the health of Dane County.
 
Examples of what the site offers include
  • Data on how Dane County ranks on a wide range of health and quality of life indicators
  • U.S. Census Bureau data that describes Dane County: People, Business and Geography Quick Facts
  • How we are doing compared to the national Healthy People 2020 goals
  • A database of Promising Practices helps the user find effective strategies used across the nation to address specific community health issues
  • Tools to help the user generate reports
