North Sound ACH has a new data tool to identify areas where individuals may be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and who may be more impacted by social isolation orders. This data dashboard was created to share information that organizations can use to ensure health equity, by focusing resources toward communities that may be more vulnerable due to health, social, or economic conditions.
The dashboard includes the five North Sound counties and the tribal nations in the region. Data included on groups at higher risk for severe illness due to age, health conditions, and pregnancy, and data about socioeconomic conditions, including income, healthcare access, and behavioral health.
