Minnesota public health and policy data
The Minnesota Electronic Health Record Consortium is a partnership between Minnesota health systems and public health agencies to provide timely and granular data to inform the real-time actions of policymakers, health system leaders, and researchers. We focus on informing health policy and practice through comprehensive data and collaboration.
In partnership with the MN Dept of Health, the MN EHR Consortium reports on COVID-19 incidence, testing, and vaccinations by race, ethnicity, and other social determinants of health to inform outreach efforts to underserved populations.
