Based on over 3M surveys and over 600 elements of social determinants of health data, Sharecare's Community Well-Being Index serves as the definitive measure of community well-being across and within populations.
The Community Well-Being Index (CWBI) combines individual risk derived from the Well-Being Index (WBI) with community risk from the Social Determinants Health Index (SDOHi) to create a single composite measure that defines our collective health risk and opportunities.
The CWBI offers a comprehensive view of well-being across states and communities, from a sample that projects to an estimated 95 percent of American adults, allowing us to identify populations where we can have the greatest influence. It also provides a framework against which we can measure well-being improvement, giving us the ability to see the impact and progress of our work in these areas over time.
For employers, health plans, health systems, and community leaders, this holistic view of health provides the framework for understanding the underlying root causes of poor health, enabling Blue Zones Project interventions that make the healthy choice the easy choice. Our data and insights on well-being inform more effective strategies that encourage the sustained lifestyle changes necessary for people to thrive and perform to their highest potential.
The CWBI is updated as well-being data is collected across the country and as new SDOH datasets are released. The real-time nature of the CWBI allows employers, health plans, health systems, and community leaders to make decisions with the most up-to-date data available on the state of their community.
RealAge® serves as the primary data collection instrument for the Community Well-Being Index.
Taken by more than 45 million people, this scientifically-based assessment shows you the true age of the body you’re living in – the first step towards improving your well-being. It provides actionable well-being information to individuals, aggregate information on employee well-being for worksites, and the ability to compare to other cities, states, and the nation.
Conceived in 1993, RealAge has been externally validated to be more predictive of mortality than the Framingham Heart Study and chronological age.
