Brief review What are health indicators? What are the Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI)? What are peer counties? What are the uses of and who are the users of CHSI? Health Indicators, Part III What are health indicators? An indicator is a summary measure that aims to
describe in a few numbers as much detail as possible about a system to help understand, compare, predict, improve, and innovate. [Source: The Good Indicators Guide http://www.apho.org.uk/resource/item.aspx?RID=44584 ] A health indicator is a characteristic of an individual, population, or environment which is subject to measurement and can be used to describe one or more
aspects of the health of an individual or population. [Source: Definition of Wellness web site http://www.definitionofwellness.com/dictionary/health-indicator.html] Health Indicators, Part III What is CHSI? (Community Health Status Indicators)
A collection of nationally available health indicators for counties, helping to present a total picture of local health. A resource for monitoring and analyzing community health status and its determinants at the county level. The goal of CHSI is to give local public health agencies another tool for improving their communitys health by identifying data resources and facilitating the setting of priorities. CHSI supports the mission and goals of public health,
the 10 essential public health services, Healthy People 2010 initiatives, and evidence-based policy and research. What is the community in Community Health Status Indicators? Individual counties data for 3,141 U.S. counties Peer counties
counties similar in population size and other selected characteristics (e.g. poverty level, age distribution, density) Health Indicators, Part III Uses of & users of CHSI and health indicators Uses of Public policy

CHSI reports Each CHSI report includes data on access and utilization of healthcare services, birth and death measures, Healthy People 2010 targets and U.S. birth and death rates, vulnerable populations, riskfactors for premature deaths, communicable diseases and
environmental health. In addition, the presentation of the data allows for comparisons of a county to its peer counties as well as U.S. rates and Healthy People 2010 targets. Health Indicators, Part III How can I access the CHSI web site?
http://www.communityhealth.hhs.gov/ CHSI: How to use your countys report Health Indicators, Part III Celebrate your success In areas where a countys health status excels, celebrate the good
news and spread the word. Let the community know about its good health where the indicators are positive. Symbols Apple = favorable status Magnifying glass = unfavorable status Health Indicators, Part III Learn from one another
By comparing a county with its peer counties that have similar characteristics, local public health agencies may be able to uncover reasons for rate differences. In areas where county rates are higher than others, share information about model programs that are making a difference, and think of other counties as good resources while working to improve the health of residents where a countys health status is lower. Peer counties may be tackling similar challenges. Communities can learn from one another as they work to create innovative solutions for improving health.
Health Indicators, Part III Involve health care providers and policy makers Share the CHSI report widely with board of health members, city council, county commissioners, state legislators, and business leaders. Can also share with health care professionals working in private practice, schools, clinics, hospitals, as well as colleagues in social
services, housing, food and nutrition, and other related programs. Improving health status takes a team effort. Health Indicators, Part III Develop healthy community partners Help publicize the CHSI reports through press releases, editorial boards, web sites, community meetings, schools and parent/teacher organizations, libraries, and other places where people will become better educated about areas that need improvement.
Involve them in identifying barriers to good health and coming up with solutions for improving health status where needed. Health Indicators, Part III Take another look The CHSI Report uses national-level data from several sources, many of which contain valuable county-level data. Examining these data may help identify areas where local or state data can fill critical gaps or where national data can be enhanced.
If the CHSI Report shows areas in a county that need improvement, this might offer the funding justification for additional surveillance to track health status indicators. Better data may be needed to target programs and policies. Health Indicators, Part III Integrate your CHSI report into existing health planning and assessment activities The CHSI Report is designed to fit into existing public health planning
resources used by local public health agencies. Make the CHSI Report work by integrating it into an agencys planning activities and action steps. The CHSI Report will be useful with other tools as well. Data on the federal Healthy People 2010 targets for the U.S. are also included in the CHSI Report. Use these targets to set goals for the community. Use the CHSI Report and other data to provide a baseline for marking your progress towards Healthy People 2010. Health Indicators, Part III
