County Health Measures
PTAC uses data from County Health Rankings as one way to identify progress towards making Pueblo County the healthiest county in Colorado. We have developed five-year goals in the broad categories of Health Outcomes and Health Behaviors. For each area, we are measuring our progress relative to four comparison counties: Boulder, Mesa and Weld.
Health Outcomes (currently 51 out of 60 counties, 2016) – Goal to move to 43rd.
Health Behaviors (currently 57 out of 60 counties, 2016) – Goal to move to 46th

Triple Aim Measures
PTAC is using two measures in each of the three legs of the Triple Aim (Cost of Care, Patient Experience, and Population Health ) to identify progress in improving the health of Pueblo County citizens.
Population Health – Years of Potential Life Lost & Residents Reporting Fair or Poor Health
Patient Experience – Clinical Care (Access and Quality) & Residents without Insurance
Cost of Care – Illness Burden & Preventable Hospital Stays

PTAC has developed goals and is tracking progress in each of our intervention categories: obesity, teen pregnancy, smoking cessation and readmissions and ED visit use.
Obesity – Percent of adults who are obese or overweight
Teen Pregnancy – Teen pregnancy rate for 15-19 year old females
Smoking Cessation – Adult smoking rate
Readmissions and ED visits – In development
