CDPH Launches Open Data Portal

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has launched its Open Data Portal, a tool that allows user-friendly access to the data it collects about important health issues. The first data tables available through the portal include birth profiles, poverty rates, the location of vendors who accept vouchers from the Women, Infants and Children program, health care facilities data, and surveillance for West Nile virus and asthma. Upcoming data will include newborn screening disorders, licensed medical device retailers and leading causes of death. Eventually, CDPH will offer data from other state departments within the California Health and Human Services Agency.
