Analytics for health & human services

Inform policy, increase transparency, and improve society with data.

Providing outstanding care to the most vulnerable and at risk populations in a cost effective manner is the goal for most health and human services (HHS) agencies. The availability of data is increasing exponentially but the ability to analyze and apply lessons from the data to improve service is still a challenge.

HHS agencies working to increase transparency, streamline operations, and empower employees with access to insight to improve healthcare and social programs are turning to Tableau. Explore how Tableau allows Federal, State and local HHS agencies to quickly and easily connect to all their data and visualize it by dragging and dropping-no scripting required.

And oftentimes, data isn’t even accessible to the employees who are most involved with the actual service delivery programs. This paper discusses how more modern data visualization tools can help HHS agencies see the bigger picture, uncover insights and achieve “aha” moments to better serve their constituents.
