Community Confidence is a data-driven decision support tool for Government and Business leaders to use when making important decisions that will impact their communities during the pandemic or other significant health challenges.
Our platform and weekly Insights Report combines actionable scientific data with community preferences to enable informed decision making that will restore confidence.
- Weigh community health risk vs. economic activity
- Simulate the impact of evidence-based recommendations
- Be confident that the decisions you make will have positive community acceptance
Who we are
This initiative is a collaboration between the Digital Health Institute for Transformation (DHIT), the Institute for Convergent Sciences and Innovate Carolina at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. This project is being funded by the North Carolina Policy Collaboratory as part of the 2020 COVID-19 Recovery Act.
We are piloting the platform with the following counties with the ability to scale to additional counties in North Carolina, and eventually, other states.
These counties were selected based on their diversity with respect to a multitude of factors: overall health outcomes, geography, rurality, economic distress, prosperity zones, population density, racial diversity, age, education level, and number of COVID-19 cases.
