Notes

Abstract: In the interest of open government data, public health departments have been making public use data available via their departmental websites. The New York City (NYC) Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has been making survey, surveillance, and administrative data available to the public since the early 2000s. In an era of increased public use of health data and increased demands on public health practitioners’ time, NYC DOHMH is investigating ways to make these data more widely attractive and usable and at the same time easier to maintain. To do this requires internal coordina-tion, user-centered design, software development and testing, and plans for outreach and evaluation. One important en-hancement in this redesign is to improve the site’s dynamic data visualization capabilities using modern tools. This work cat-alogues NYC DOHMH’s redevelopment efforts as it better understands users and reimagines uses for its public use data.
