The Assessment Alignment Committee met February 8, 2018, to finalize the list of core indicators and the data dictionary. The list of indicators was updated based on a pilot testing process that occurred in 2017 with local public health (Dakota, Hennepin, and Washington counties) and hospitals (HealthEast) and is intended to fully replace the list that was previously adopted by the CCH Steering Committee in June 2016. These two documents are what all CCH members should now be using to pull data for the core indicators for their CHNA and CHA processes.
