MaineHealth Health Index Initiative Reports 

The MaineHealth Health Index Initiative was launched in 2009-10 with the two-fold aim of: 

  • Engaging MaineHealth, Maine’s largest integrated health system, and its partners to use health data to inform needs and opportunities to improve the health of the nearly 1.0 million people in the 11 counties served by the MaineHealth system
  • Monitor improvements made in health status over time

The Health Index Initiative focuses on seven priority areas where MaineHealth and our partners can substantially improve population health.  The initial six priorities, selected in 2009, were drawn from issues monitored in the America’s Health Rankings® framework: Decrease tobacco use, Decrease obesity, Increase childhood immunizations, Decrease preventable hospitalizations, Decrease cancer death rates, and Decrease cardiovascular death rates.  "Decrease Prescription Drug Abuse and Addiction" was added as a the seventh priority in 2012.
