Bing Health Maps Focuses on Healthiest (or Unhealthiest) Places in the Country
When Microsoft announced in 2009 at a conference I was attending that they were serious about having Bing become a real competitor of Google…..I didn’t think they were serious. There have been way too many times in the past when the giant Microsoft said they were going to go all-out…and then it never materialized. Bing however, cannot be thrown into that category.
I’ve recently become impressed with many of Bing’s features. One that caught my eye today was the Health Information part of their website. What Bing has done is they took their map service and allowed their users to select certain health indicators…..and you can view these by state. The health indicators include:
- Low Birth Weight
- Very Low Birth Weight
- Births to Women Under 18
- Births to Women over 40
- Births to Unmarried Women
- No Prenatal Care in First Trimester
- Infant Mortality
- White Non-Hispanic Infant Mortality
- Black Non-Hispanic Infant Mortality
- Hispanic Infant Mortality
- Neonatal Mortality
- Postneonatal Mortality
- Breast Cancer (Female)
- Colon Cancer
- Coronary Heart Disease
- Lung Cancer
- Motor Vehicles Injuries
- Unintentional injuries (excl. motor vehicle accidents)
HEALTH RISK FACTORS
- No Exercise
- Few Fruits and Vegetables
- High Blood Pressure
We mention this part of Bing for doctors because we know that some of you are contemplating moving to different states because of the high cost of medical malpractice insurance. Or….you may just like looking at the data like I do!
In any event, we know that the more information you have, the more likely you will make a better decision. This is why we have posted historic medical malpractice insurance data for doctors, for all states, dating back to the year 2000. Just another, of many, reason MyMedicalMalpracticeInsurance.com stands above the rest.
