The Trenton Health Team is leading this two-year project to increase cross-sector data sharing and geo-mapping to accelerate lead abatement efforts in New Jersey’s capital. The Trenton Health Team is partnering with Isles, Inc., in this work to build a healthier community. They are linking clinical records and geo-mapped information in a manner that respects patient privacy and HIPAA regulations and developing custom dashboards to identify issues, trends, and “hotspots” for action. In addition, the Trenton Health Team is sharing the data with health care providers, local agencies and community members to facilitate integrated in-home interventions. At a broader level, other communities will be able to replicate this model to address additional health issues created by substandard housing, including respiratory conditions, trip and fall hazards, and fire safety.
