Voyatek Partners with the State of Montana Department of Public Health to Launch Community Health Insights in the 406

The data platform empowers evidence-based decision-making via expanded access to healthcare data and analytics.


Voyatek, the leader in outcome-driven technology solutions for state and local government, in partnership with the State of Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS), Public Health and Safety Division, and the Office of Epidemiology and Scientific Support (OESS), announced the launch of Community Health Insights in the 406, a web-based data analytics and visualization platform.

Community Health Insights in the 406 will enable Montana state leaders to make evidence-based decisions and provide responsive, user-friendly analytics and visualization tools to users, with a goal of improving health outcomes within communities throughout the state.

The data analytics platform will provide authorized users self-service access to state-specific public health data, including birth rates, death rates, cancer rates, and hospital and emergency room use. Authorized users will also have access to informative survey results on health insurance coverage, preventive health screenings, mental health and chronic condition diagnoses, as well as health-linked behaviors such as exercise and substance use.

“Voyatek is committed to supporting the DPHSS Public Health and Safety Division’s mission of improving and protecting the health of Montanans by advancing conditions for healthy living,” said Sarah Samis, VP of Public Health Products & Platforms at Voyatek. “The easy-to-navigate Health Insights in the 406 system empowers all users—not just data analytics experts—to explore and leverage public health data. It also provides users with the ability to export compiled data in a variety of file formats for further analysis.”

Community Health Insights in the 406 is an implementation of Voyatek’s Community Health Analytics platform, which was designed to promote transparency, increase awareness, and provide state governments with the capability to make data-driven decisions about public health.

Community Health Insights is a valuable tool that provides residents and public health officials in Montana with access to data to better inform health decisions at the individual and community levels,” said Laura Williamson, State Epidemiologist with Montana DPHHS. “The platform provides insights key to DPHSS and its’ partners missions to protect and improve the health, well-being and self-reliance of all Montanans.”
