Public Health England have released a new app that allows you to access Child health profiles via your iPhone or iPad.
Child Health Profiles give a snapshot of child health and wellbeing for each local authority in England, using key health indicators. Users can compare this information to local, regional and national data. (Click on the link above to access the full website and see more details about the service.)
The app will help people working in health and social care improve the health and wellbeing of children and reduce inequalities, by giving clear and simple information about the current picture in a local area.
Data in the app covers a wide range of issues affecting child health, from levels of childhood obesity, teenage pregnancy and underage drinking, to hospital admissions, educational performance and youth crime. (Public Health England)
The app is free to download and can be obtained directly from iTunes or go to the CHIMAT pages (Child and Maternal Health). There is a nice demo of the app on these pages if you would like to view it before you download.
