exploreMOhealth is a community health needs assessment platform created to provide ZIP code level rankings across major health behaviors and health outcomes in an effort to illuminate high-risk communities at the subcounty level. Developed by researchers at the Hospital Industry Data Institute and Washington University School of Medicine, Missouri ZIP Health Rankings combine with County Health Rankings to create one of the most unique health-related datasets in the country. The site was launched in 2018 with support from the Missouri Hospital Association to help hospitals and community health stakeholders optimize the effectiveness of community health improvement interventions. Data is the key to diagnosing and addressing the region’s most pressing health issues, and by making this information publicly available, HIDI and MHA are furthering their missions to improve health and the health care system.
