The New Mexico Department of Health Results Scorecard shows the progress we made toward a Healthier New Mexico during fiscal year 2018 (FY18), quarter 3 (Q3). You can use this Scorecard to learn about the actions we are taking to carry out our Strategic Plan. The Scorecard shows what we are doing and how well we are doing it.
A Result (R) is the condition of well-being we would like to see for the population of New Mexico. An Indicator (I) helps us measure the desired Result in the population. A Program (P) is an organizational unit in our agency that helps us reach the desired Results. A Performance Measure (PM) helps us measure how well a Program is contributing to population health.
Time Period describes the most recent period for which data are available. The Actual Value, Target Value, and Current Trend are for the Time Period shown. Actual Values may show a background color. Green means we met the Target Value. Yellow means we were close to the Target Value. Red means we did not meet the Target Value. The Current Trend shows whether we have been getting better or worse. A green arrow shows the trend is moving in the direction we desire, a red arrow shows the trend is moving away from our desired target, and a black arrow shows that the trend is staying the same. The number next to the arrow shows how many periods in a row the trend has been in the same direction.
