Wisconsin Public Health Information Network (WIPHIN) Analysis, Visualization, and Reporting (AVR)


Public Health Information Network

Connecting and sharing health information


The Wisconsin Public Health Information Network (WIPHIN) Analysis, Visualization, and Reporting (AVR) is a toolset that makes the use and analysis of public health data easier and more accessible for the public health community.

What is it?

The Wisconsin PHIN AVR provides the ability to integrate, analyze, display, report and map data as well as share data and technologies for analysis and visualization with other public health partners.

Why do we need it?

The Wisconsin PHIN AVR provides tools for data reporting, statistical analysis, and spatial analysis using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other visualization, display and mapping functions through the implementation of commercial off the shelf software (COTS). The specific products used are the SAS Enterprise Business Intelligence Server and ESRI's ArcGIS Server. These software tools will allow system users to leverage public health data, turning it into information that can be readily used for decision making.

What data is available?

AVR is a secure web-based application requiring a user ID and password. Two types of data are available to registered AVR users: general use and restricted. General use data is available to all AVR users and is not subject to strict confidentiality requirements. Restricted data is sensitive in nature, and access must be granted by a data steward knowledgeable about the confidentiality requirements of a particular dataset. 

Available Datasets as of December 2014 (PDF,  57 KB)
