Burden of Chronic Conditions

Burden of Chronic Conditions

HSR can help you estimate the cases, costs, and health impacts of Chronic Diseases in California Counties. This is ongoing project uses estimates from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Chronic Disease Cost Calculator, the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), and a number of other sources (see the Background Information). We update the information periodically (last update: September 2018). Your comments are welcomed.

HSR aims in rural and underserved areas make better decisions about how they allocate their money. Part of this mission involves providing local decision makers with the information they need to make informed decisions. The information provided on this webpage is intended to assist and inform County Officials, researchers, members of the public, and community organizations.1

The data were compiled by researchers at the University of California, Merced (Professor Paul Brown, Ravi Singh, and Dr. Jonathan Boyajian) and the National University of Colombia in Bogota) (Professor Jorge Diaz, Dr. Jairo Alexander Moreno, and Carolina Sarmiento).

To see the types of analysis that can be do, refer to:

Are you a part of a CACHI initiative?

The California Accountable Communities for Health Initiatives (CACHI) bring together clinical providers with public health departments, schools, social service agencies, community organizations, and other stakeholders to help improve the health of their community. The analysis can help those involved with CACHI to understand the cost and burden of health conditions facing their communities. If you are part of a CACHI and would like assistance, please contact us and we be happy to provide you with the information you need.
