The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) is releasing updates on the Iowa Public Health Tracking (IPHT) portal.
· Emergency department visits data. New information is available via several new dashboards created for areas including: asthma, carbon monoxide poisoning, and heat related illnesses. Emergency Department visit data are available for years 2003-2012.
· Heat Related Illness data added. A new content area for Heat Related Illnesses was added under Health Effects and includes both emergency department and hospitalization data.
· User experience improvements. Dashboards were redesigned for an improved user experience. The site’s navigation was updated to direct users to content specific landing pages rather than listing every available dashboard in the navigation.
Along with the above updates we have also released an additional year of data for Hospitalization data (2012) and Cancer (2011).
