Community Health Planning Profiles

The Department of Health created Community Health Planning Profiles, which are accessible through a Web site (www.health.state.mo.us). These profiles provide quick and easy access to health data. Presently, there are county profiles on thirteen subject areas including: death; chronic disease; economic factors; hospitalizations; infectious disease; unintentional injuries; Medicaid participation; population estimates; local public health systems; leading health problems; maternal, infant and child health; management/capacity variables for hospitals; and nursing homes. Each county profile has data on 15 to 30 indicators, providing number of events, rate, statistical significance, quintile ranking and the State rate. Each indicator is then linked to a resource page that provides a definition of the indicator, risk factors, condition description, intervention strategies, State and community resources and programs, published reports, and other related Web sites.
