Health Information Blueprint Project: Building an Infrastructure for Our Region

What: A Blueprint for a health information infrastructure for Missouri and its bordering metropolitan areas.

Why: To ensure the people, providers, purchasers, and policy makers have timely access to insights that inform health care decisions, support optimal health, and lead to the highest value health care.

Vital to any community is timely and reliable access to health care information—specifically, the number of people being treated for various conditions, the care that they receive, utilization trends, inequities in resource allocation, and the cost of services. This information is essential to creating an environment that consistently delivers care that aligns with recognized quality standards, is responsive to patient needs, and is affordable.

Over half of other states have operationalized or are implementing data infrastructures to inform better population health and care value. Click here to learn more.

St. Louis Health Statistics, 2020

Released and updated annually, this scorecard of key health statistics for St. Louis commercial populations provides regional benchmark information to enable St. Louis employers, medical groups, health plans, and others to understand how their population compares to the broader commercially insured population in our region.  These comparisons help to shine a light on improvement opportunities and progress made over time.

The Scorecard also provides measures by which the community can gauge its collective progress toward making St. Louis a national leader in health and the quality and affordability of health care. Metrics are categorized into four domains: population health; care quality; utilization; and cost and affordability.  Have an idea for new metrics to be included, click here.
