Z-Atlas, America's health index, provides tools and information for understanding the health of the US population.
Z-Atlas presents information about health and health care in the United States and provides links to other information sources as well as a unique collection of atlases developed by the National Minority Quality Forum, which is using its comprehensive database to map the health status of Americans.
Organized by disease, the atlases provide users with unparalleled access to zip-code-based maps and information on incidence, prevalence, and costs. Profiling each disease, the atlases allow users to monitor health status by state, by county, by metropolitan statistical area, or by legislative district.
Statistical software designed to generate multiple summary measures to evaluate and monitor health disparities. Allows the user to import SEER data or other population-based health data and calculate any of eleven disparity measurements. From the National Cancer Institute.
The mission of the NCCC is to increase the capacity of health care and mental health care programs to design, implement, and evaluate culturally and linguistically competent service delivery systems to address growing diversity, persistent disparities, and to promote health and mental health equity.
The FAIR Database is a searchable tool containing 388 journal article summaries, distilled from 11 systematic reviews of the published health disparities literature. The systematic reviews were published as a Special Supplement to the October 2007 issue of Medical Care Research and Review, and a symposium in the July 2012 issue of the Journal of General Internal Medicine
