More than 100 scientific studies show that a resident’s proximity to health resources is linked to his or her health outcome. CartoChrome’s mission is to educate residents and healthcare providers about the accessibility of health resources in their targeted geographic location. To achieve this mission, CartoChrome designed simple health indices from 0 to 100 using our unique algorithm after dissecting the research studies.
CartoChrome envisions every resident to visit a healthcare provider based on their specific health condition with minimal healthcare barriers. To do this, we must first understand the areas that are underrepresented when it comes to healthcare access.
