Instructions for Reporting

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, the documents below 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.

These instructions replace previously available guidance for 2014 reporting.
