OpenFindings, a new CommerceNet initiative, has launched a collaborative site (beta) that supports research and patient communities, making healthcare information more readily available to everyone.

Community Site Offers Sharing and Visualization
OpenFindings collects health data from widespread public sources and makes it accessible with easy-to-understand graphs and charts. Thumbnail images enable users to compare and contrast groups of data in a single place, without having to construct queries or build custom programs.

OpenFindings transforms complex tabular data into dynamic graphs that enable visualization of demographic distributions and time and geographic trends. One-click navigation makes it easy for community members to discover, browse, and build new graphs.

A Call for Volunteers
OpenFindings’ mission is to catalyze the science and public health communities to share data and further scientific discourse and discovery. Join us!

OpenFindings seeks web designers, web developers, database programmers, and other volunteers to help build out the beta community site. OpenFindings may also need individuals familiar with nonprofit administration and grant writing.
