Healthy Futures Focus Area: Instrument Packets for Pilot Year 2

The Healthy Futures Focus Area refers to unmet health needs within communities including access to health care, preventive and primary health care, health literacy, and reducing childhood obesity.

There are four packets in the Healthy Futures Focus Area. Each packet consists of one or more national performance measures and includes:

  • Description of the national performance measures covered by the packet
  • Definitions of key terms
  • Considerations for measuring the national performance measures
  • Data collection challenges and strategies
  • Data collection instruments
  • Instructions for using the instruments

All of the packets address national output measures. Remember, you are required to identify and measure an intermediate outcome that aligns with the output you select and that supports your service activity.

All packets are compatible with Adobe Reader.
