Abstract

Community-based programs are critical for locally targeted public health education and accessible service delivery. Deriving useful information from such programs is important for their own evaluation and improvement and may facilitate research collaboration with partners and experts. Here we present an interactive Web-based application designed for a community-based oral health outreach program called ElderSmile to demonstrate how data can be summarized, fi ltered, compared, and visualized by time and place to inform program planning, evaluation, and research. The ElderSmile TimeMap (http://www.acsu.buffalo.edu/~smetcalf/resources/timemap.html) is an emergent product of a US National Institutes of Health -funded collaboration of knowledge sharing among multidisciplinary team members at the University at Buffalo, Columbia University, and New York University.
