Hospital Data

In order to better understand community health needs, the Ozarks Health Commission (OHC) collected and aggregated Emergency Department (ED) data from partnering hospitals across the OHC Region. The OHC focused data evaluation around the diagnosis groups that aligned with the Assessed Health Issues (AHI). Of all AHI, lung disease, cardiovascular disease, and mental health issues were the most prevalent, respectively.  The presentation of specific health issues varied by age, sex, race, and ethnicity. The data assists OHC Communities in determining priority health issues and developing strategic Community Health Implementation Plans (CHIPs) that align with the strengths of healthcare, public health, and community-based agencies.
