There are three types of access into GeoHealth.
Open data access is available for all who try to
access GeoHealth (GeoHealth.hhs.gov). The data available with no account is
data that is available to the public and has no use restrictions. This type of
data is the most common in GeoHealth and allows many users from all levels of
government and NGOs to access and use this data for their needs.
The second type of access is restricted data
access. This type of access is required for those data sets that have
limitations on access based on licensing or release restrictions. The only time
you will need to use a data access username and password is when opening a web
map or data that has a data use restriction. This is the most typical type of
account that is created. This account does NOT give you access to “Sign-In” to
the application and can only be used for accessing data.
The third type of account is application access.
This account type is the most rare and is limited to those staff within HHS or
others that require certain abilities that are only available with this
account. The determination of this account type will be based on the
information provided by the applicant and communication with the GeoHealth
