Local Public Health Act Performance Measures Reporting
Reporting on Local Public Health Act performance measures is typically open in February and March of each year. Reporting is due March 31. Community health boards report performance measures in REDCap; each individual reporting logs into REDCap using his/her own individual username and password.
Use instructions to compile your community health board's data prior to when reporting opens. The instructions do not require a password.

Use Data for Improvement
- Review your community health board's data, noting trends, improvements, and room to improve; look at other data for this year and past years
- Discuss the data with your regional public health nurse consultant, who can assist and connect you with resources for interpretation, quality improvement, and more
- Think about how other community health boards have used their data for improvement
- Use what you've learned to make improvements and continue to grow
