HealthData Connector

Intro

The HealthData.gov is dedicated to making valuable health data discoverable and available to the public in the hopes of better health outcomes for all. It provides data on a wide range of topics, including environmental health, medical devices, social services, community health, and mental health. The Domo HealthData connector helps you to fetch the public health information datasets for various categories. Use Domo’s HealthData connector to get the recently added datasets and retrieve updated public health data.
