Today’s Legislative Call to Action: Data Mapping
About S 198
Directs the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to include data on certain maternal health outcomes in its broadband health mapping tool. This is an online platform that allows users to visualize, overlay, and analyze broadband and health data at national, state, and county levels. The FCC must consult with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to determine which maternal health outcomes should be incorporated. The Government Accountability Office must also study the effectiveness of internet connectivity in improving maternal health outcomes and other issues.
