The Community Data Scorecard, conducted by the Data Review Subcommittee, focuses on the collection and assessment Genesee County data to both inform and validate the activities of the Greater Flint Health Coalition as well as assist with the identification of community health needs. A major activity of the Subcommittee is to compile data from federal, state, and local resources including the voluntary sharing of data from its insurance, purchaser, provider, and government representatives into its Community Data Scorecard, which measures ongoing changes and impacts on the healthcare delivery system and health status in the Genesee County community. Partner organizations that contribute data for integration into the Scorecard include Genesee County’s primary health insurers (Health Alliance Plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Blue Care Network, and McLaren Health Plan), all three Genesee County hospitals (Genesys Health System, McLaren Flint, and Hurley Medical Center), safety-net providers (Hamilton Community Health Network, Mott Children’s Health Center, and Genesee Health System), the City of Flint, Genesee County Health Department, Genesee County Medical Society, Genesee Health Plan, Genesee Intermediate School District, and Genesee County Department of Human Services.
The Scorecard incorporates a wide range of data components to effectively monitor and analyze health trends occurring Genesee County, including data related to:
- Population, socio-economic, and economic Status;
- Physician capacity and access;
- Health plan utilization;
- County health status;
- Health care economic impact;
- Child and birth measures; and
- Collective impact measures.
The Scorecard serves as a useful tool in guiding areas of joint opportunity throughout the community.
