By analyzing 93 health indicators in eight general areas of well-being, the 2007 Miami-Dade County Community Health Report Card assesses our community. The Report Card asks, how well are systems and institutions meeting resident needs? Grades are given on (1) maternal and child health; (2) the health of people through youth into adulthood; (3) lifestyle practices that influence health; (4) the use of the healthcare system; (5) chronic disease from a prevention approach; (6) the nearly 600,000 persons without health insurance; (7) the safety and support of the community and environment; and (8) issues affecting elders. Grades are employed as a call to action for policy makers and other stakeholders in Miami-Dade County.
The Report Card identifies areas where resources must be targeted for health improvement. Best practices and, where possible, data drill downs are also available.
