We encourage you to consult with your colleagues (especially in multi-county CHBs) in order to ensure that you are able to provide valid, reliable information. Be honest and thoughtful about what your CHB is doing in each area of responsibility.
To help you to gather that information in preparation for completing PPRMS reporting, MDH will post documents that contain all measures and instructions for this year's reporting cycle. We encourage you to print these documents and use them as a reference while reporting into PPMRS, as they contain instructions that will be useful throughout reporting.
Instructions for reporting on 2014 data will be posted in November and December 2014 as they become available. Once the instructions are online, you can start compiling information for reporting; you do not need to wait until the reporting period opens to start working.
