In January 2016 AcademyHealth's Community Health Peer Learning (CHP) Program in partnership with the Office of the National Coordinator, awarded 15 communities with grants to work towards improving community health through the expanded collection, exchange, and use of health data.

This Community Profile outlines the efforts of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). CCHMC and community-based staff worked to identify hot spots of poor child health and to understand underlying social determinants of health. With integration of electronic health records (EHR) and geographic information systems, participants aim to gain understanding and then take action to reduce inpatient hospitalizations for pediatric patients.
