Data dashboard

The dashboard is a tool provided to all Accountable Communities of Health (ACHs) and local health jurisdictions across the state, giving them access to interactive information for community assessments. The dashboards integrate data from multiple sources, including Medicaid claims and enrollment data, immunization data, and survey data.

How will the data meet the needs of the ACHs?

ACHs need data and information about the people in each region to:

  • Conduct regional health assessments
  • Engage in planning for health improvement
  • Measure health outcomes

The dashboard supports the need for ACHs to have actionable data on population health and social determinants of health.

Where can I find more information?

  • Dashboard fact sheet - provides background information about the dashboard, as well as what measures are being looked at.
  • Dashboard presentation - provides information about how to navigate the dashboard, understanding the data, and planned developments for future releases.
  • Dashboard technical documentation - provides information about the data sources, measures, and analytic approach.
  • ACH convening presentation - covers the Medicaid Transformation Demonstration Regional Health Needs Inventory (RHNI) scope and timeline, toolkit measures, and Healthier Washington data dashboard information.

What are other state data sources?

The Alliance is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that shares the most reliable data on health care quality and value in the state to help providers, patients, employers and union trusts make better decisions about health care.

The Washington State Health Care Authority purchases health care for more than 2 million Washington residents through two programs — Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) and the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program.

Research and Data Analysis (RDA) provides data, analytics, and decision support tools to improve the delivery of services that transform lives.

ACH profiles

The current profiles refer to the current ACH configuration and the future profiles are the planned transitions of counties moving to other ACHs.   So the current version is what they should look like today.  These reports will always have a run date and an ‘as of’ date for the data.  Those will always be the same for both current and future configurations.

The Washington Tracking Network (WTN) provides users with data and information about environmental health hazards, population characteristics, and health outcomes.

How might some dashboard data look different from other state data sources?

The Health Care Authority (HCA) envisions the dashboard, as well as data related to the Medicaid Transformation demonstration, to be used in tandem with other data sources. HCA works with all state partners to continue building a robust, easy-to-use, and consistent reporting and data infrastructure to inform state, regional, and community health decisions. There are various  methods of reporting data; learn more about AIM’s methodology.
