About WV Healthlink

WV Healthlink began in 2017 to develop a geographic decision support tool to address the needs of the Rural Health Initiative and medical schools in West Virginia. The project was led by three faculty members from the Geography Department at WVU. With the support of a team of several graduate students and undergrate researchers they created a comprehensive mapping application that included every primary care center in the state. WV Healthlink developed a socio-spatial index that evaluates the acecssiblity of primary care centers for every community in West Virginia.
