Chicago Health & Health
Department of Public Health
with support from the Otho S.A. Sprague Memorial
Chicago Health & Health Systems Project, through the initial support
of the Otho S.A. Sprague Memorial Institute, monitors and analyzes Chicago’s
health care system. The Health Systems Project collects health care
resource data from ambulatory primary health care centers and hospitals
and uses these data to create comprehensive profiles for each of Chicago’s
77 community areas.
Community Health Profiles include community-specific
demographic information, maternal and child health indices, hospital
discharge diagnoses, as well as health care resource capacity and utilization
data. The Health Systems Project also produces individual Hospital
Profiles, which provide information on various measures, including:
the number of beds, admissions, average length of stay (ALOS), occupancy
Chicago Health & Health Systems Project produced several reports,
Chicago’s Health Care Safety Net:
A 12-Year Review of Chicago’s Community-Based Primary Care System,
Chicago’s Underserved: Regional Health Systems Profiles,
Hospital Profile 1999-2003, and
of Chicago's Mental Health System, 2003.
