SDOH Analytics

PCCI leverages data science and social determinants of health (SDOH) to better support under-served populations across our communities.

Health (and health disparities) are directly affected by SDOH factors. For example, transportation to seek care, access to nutritious food, safe neighborhoods, and stable income all directly impact health outcomes. And while health disparities are frequently seen in terms of race and ethnicity, they also occur across a broad range of dimensions and reflect a complex set of social, environmental, and individual factors. To help organizations obtain a more comprehensive and holistic understanding of their communities and service populations, PCCI has developed a web-based tool, the Community Vulnerability Compass (CVC). Through use of the online, interactive dashboard, CVC users can visualize and more fully understand (from a region down to a granular, block-group level) the context and complexities of the social barriers to health, access, and well-being of a community’s most vulnerable populations. These insights can both inform and enhance SDOH-based initiatives.

Through use of the online CVC tool, users can answer questions like:

● What are the socio-economic characteristics of specific neighborhoods in my communities and how vulnerable are they?
● What are the root causes (or drivers of) of the vulnerabilities impacting local health outcomes?
