What things would have the biggest impact on overall health?
Leading Health Indicators
Leading Health Indicators (LHIs) are critical health issues that—if tackled appropriately—will dramatically reduce the leading causes of death and preventable illnesses. The Clinical Preventive Services LHIs are:
- Adults who receive a colorectal cancer screening based on the most recent guidelines (C-16)
- Adults with hypertension whose blood pressure is under control (HDS-12)
- Adults with diabetes with an A1c value greater than 9% (D-5.1)
- Children aged 19 to 35 months who receive the recommended doses of DTaP, polio, MMR, Hib, hepatitis B, varicella, and PCV vaccines (IID-8)
