Health Promotion Across Life Span

State health report cards identify key health indicators related to health outcomes, health behaviors, and quality of health systems. By examining these health indicators and how they might influence the health status of your specific patient population, you will be able to better address health risk behaviors and burdens of illness within your clinical setting. In this Discussion, review your state’s health report card and consider direct and indirect burdens of key health indicators. (www.americashealthrankings,org). Post an explanation of your state’s key health indicators and how these indicators influence health status. Explain how this relates to what is and what is not covered under Medicare and Medicaid. Then, explain the direct and indirect burdens of health risk behaviors and disease (i.e., cost, morbidity, premature mortality, etc.). Finally, explain how policy impacts key health indicators and the burdens of health risk behaviors and disease. Locate and review your state’s health report card. Reflect on your state’s statistics and key health indicators, including how they influence health status. Consider how this relates to what is and is not covered under Medicare and Medicaid. Think about the direct and indirect burdens of health risk behaviors and disease (i.e., costs, morbidity, premature mortality, etc.). Consider how policy impacts key health indicators and burdens of health risk behaviors and disease.
