Local Health Department Clinical Services Data (LHD-HSA)

In 2018, local health department clinical service data reporting and analysis moved to a secure, direct file upload format for all local health departments located at the State Center for Health Statistics. Data analysis now occurs using Statistical Analytical Software (SAS).   L-DAS processes local health department clinical data from the electronic health records of 100 counties daily.
