Health Data for Farmers and other Producers

Health data is any data “related to health conditions reproductive outcomes, causes of death, and quality of life” for an individual or population. Health data also includes clinical metrics along with environmental, socioeconomic and behavioral information pertinent to health and wellness.

Health data can be used to track the quality of care provided by health care systems, provide guidance for clinical decision making, and track risk factors that may be warning signs a patient could develop a particular medical condition among other things.

Research has demonstrated that these data can be used to inform improvements in population health, for example, by characterizing disease outbreaks in near real time, identifying adverse effects of medications, and predicting clinical deterioration after hospital discharge.

Rural communities experience significant barriers to accessing health care, including financial barriers, inadequate transport, and distance to the nearest facility as well as limited services available. It includes, weak healthcare systems, high disease burden, healthcare system corruption, poor leadership and administration, non-use of evidence-based intervention, poor quality of healthcare services, lack of good resource management, weak training and education of healthcare workers.

HealthStrong interacts and validates the health profile of rural farmers on a one-to-one basis. HealthStrong provide real-time health data of registered and vetted farmers globally.
HealthStrong achieves this through a voluntary participation of farmers in a comprehensive health survey which analyses their true health conditions and its global impact in compliance with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
