Missouri Information for Community Assessment (MICA)

The Missouri Information for Community Assessment (MICA) system is a breakthrough effort in offering an easy-to-use Internet tool for communities and public health professionals to access health information and data. This interactive system allows users access to health information that may be used in setting policies, guiding health programs, and educating policymakers and citizens on their communities' health status. By logging into the Missouri Department of Health's homepage (www.health.state.mo.us), an individual can follow simple steps to summarize health data, calculate rates, and prepare information in a graphic format for presentation. Users can choose from among the many conditions and generate ad hoc data tables of percents or age-adjusted rates by year of occurrence, age, gender, race, county, or zip code of residence. MICA provides data on causes of deaths, births, hospital discharges, emergency room visits, inpatient procedures, all injuries, assault injuries, self-inflicted injuries, unintentional injuries, pregnancies, preventable hospitalizations, linked motor vehicle crashes and hospital discharges, physicians, RNs, and LPNS.
