The Environmental Health Data Portal is NH's environmental public health tracking system. The EPHT portal is now supported by Web-based Interactive System for Direction and Outcome Measures (WISDOM). WISDOM is a web portal that provides data about environmental hazards, exposures, and health effects that may be linked to the environment. Data available on WISDOM focuses on measures of health outcomes that are related to the environment, hazard data that tells us about pollutants that may be found in the environment, and exposure data that tells us about contaminants found in people's bodies. Indicator measures include asthma hospitalizations, heart attack (acute myocardial infarction) hospitalizations, cancers, birth defects, vital statistics, key contaminants in public drinking water, air pollution, and childhood blood lead levels.
Data provided by WISDOM is designed to help federal, state, and local agencies, and others to:
- Monitor and distribute information about environmental hazards and disease trends
- Advance research on possible linkages between environmental hazards and disease, and
- Develop, implement, and evaluate regulatory and public health actions to prevent or control environment-related diseases.
NH Health WISDOM works best with Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. Dashboard functionality may not work correctly in any version of Internet Explorer. NH Health WISDOM may run slowly in Internet Explorer version 8 and older.
To use WISDOM on Internet Explorer 8, please allow pop-ups (to open reports in full screen) and follow the below instruction which allows our servers to communicate correctly.
