Background and Motivation

Today all our services are being provided to residents without understanding where they live and how the local context of their surroundings affect their health outcomes. This is because we have messy and incomplete addresses for the residents that we serve. Having a clean address list that is geocoded will allow us to augment our data with external data sources as well as allocate resources appropriately according to the local needs.
