Health Report CardIn 1995, the Louisiana legislature passed Act 985, which required that the Louisiana Department of Health prepare a yearly Health Report Card. Beginning in 2014, this publication was prepared by the Office of Public Health, through the Bureau of Health Informatics and provided data describing the overall health of its citizens and the state's health-related issues. In addition to informing Louisianans on the overall health circumstances in our state, this annual publication is an effective tool for health planning and evaluating the effectiveness of health programs. The annual Vital Records Report is included as the appendix to the Health Report Card.
