The Population Health Analytics, Metric and Evaluation (PHAME) center integrates novel technology with academic expertise to provide community-level data analysis, evaluation and visualization for community members, policy makers, researchers and students in the city of Chicago and beyond. We aim to support and advance data-driven public health decisions, meaningful population health initiatives and the reduction of health disparities, all centered around social determinants of health.
Core elements of the PHAME Center
Citizens Accessible health data brings community members into the decision-making process for public health and healthcare goals.
Scholars UIC School of Public Health experts in health data, health policy and social determinants of health collaborate with Chicago citizens.
Tech Hyperlocal data and analysis build the case for public health strategies and solutions.
Chicago Health Atlas
We believe data should be accurate, transparent and easy to understand. With partners Metopio and the Chicago Department of Public Health, the PHAME Center is managing the Chicago Health Atlas so that citizens review, explore and compare health-related data over time and across communities.
