COVID-19: Health Trends in Missouri's Commercially Insured Population, Year One

While the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed most areas of the life we knew, health care may have been disrupted the most. To assist providers, purchasers, and our community in understanding COVID’s impact and the potential for future change, Midwest Health Initiative (MHI) offers this COVID-19, Year One report. Using MHI’s claims dataset representing more than 2.2 million people in the region, this analysis examines care received by Missouri’s commercially insured adults aged 18-64 years from the start of COVID-19 through the first quarter of 2021.

Charted trends include:
     (1) COVID-19 Testing, Diagnosis, and Hospitalizations;
     (2) Care Delivered In-Office vs. Telehealth;
     (3) Acute Care; and
     (4) Preventative Screenings

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, 2022

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 health stats also provide 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.

Our Mission

To provide a forum where trusted information and shared responsibility are used to improve health and the quality and affordability of health care.
