BMI Notebook

This notebook represents a summation of all of the documents prepared during the course of the Altarum Institute Childhood Obesity Prevention Mission Project's analysis of body mass index (BMI) surveillance system implantation in the state of Michigan, and the technical assistance it provided to the state to enable the use of BMI surveillance in the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR).

The notebook includes background materials, including the needs assessment results, in Sections 1 and 2. The key document in the third section, Technical Input, is the MCIR BMI Growth Module Functional Specifications, detailing the systems intended functions. Section 4 includes documentation of system testing.

A Final Report presented in that section summarizes the results of in-clinic testing plus recommendations for completing development of the MCIR BMI Growth Module and preparing for statewide deployment.

Because of the large size of the document, it has been broken into four separate sections to ease downloadability. All attachments are in Adobe PDF.

Part 2, Report Section 3 (4.1 MB)

Part 3, Report Section 4 & 5 (2.5 MB)
