At the end of August, reports specific to community health boards' (CHBs') data were distributed to each CHB (titled Local Public Health Planning and Performance Measurement Reporting System: A Report on Capacity and Services and Reported Capacity to Achieve the National Standards in 2012: A Confidential Ranking of Community Health Boards). Recently, statewide summary reports were also released on the LPH Act performance measures.

Staff from the MDH Office of Performance Improvement will convene a discussion focused on how local public health administrators have used the CHB reports with key audiences so far and how others can prepare to use the reports in the future.
