The Colorado Health Report Card
The Colorado Health Foundation publishes annual updates on the current status of health, health care and health coverage in Colorado using data provided by various sources. The Colorado Health Report Card, which is produced in conjunction with the Colorado Health Institute, provides data on 38 key health indicators, such as prenatal care, access to health care and obesity, in five life stages:
This year's Report Card supplement, "Keeping Colorado Competitive: Roadmap to a Healthier, More Productive Workforce," explores the connection between the state's physical and mental health and its economic health. Along with highlighting the economic burden poor and mediocre health imposes on Colorado's economy, the supplement quantifies – in specific dollar amounts – how Colorado would benefit if it were No. 1 among states in key health indicators.
The supplement and this year's Report Card website delve deeper into answering exactly what it would mean if Colorado were No. 1 in key health indicators. By taking this approach, we're able to demonstrate what a difference it would make if Coloradans took steps toward becoming the healthiest state in the nation.
