Health Statistics and Data

What We Do

The Health Statistics and Data Analytics Team at the Office of Rural Health (ORH) strives to assist ORH programs with using data in ways that help improve monitoring and evaluation efforts. The data of study include performance measures, participation, technical assistance, economic impact, mapping and other descriptive statistics.

Performance Measures

The Office of Rural Health (ORH) has defined and currently tracks over 70 distinct and operational performance measures to assist in monitoring and evaluation of its programs as well as to enhance its ability to inform partners and grantees about progress regarding programs and selected services rendered. Measuring performance also assists ORH to determine if goals are met, compare the progress of programs and individual grantees with other state and national averages, reveal areas where improvements are needed, and identify and share successes. ORH grantees report on several process, outcome, and quality measures, some of which include: Patients Served, FTEs, Diabetes Control, Hypertension Control, Tobacco Screening and Cessation Intervention, Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening and Follow Up; Screening for Clinical Depression and Follow-Up.
Where possible, these performance measure definitions were sourced from National Quality Forum (NQF) endorsed measures.
