The Vermont Blueprint's HSA Profiles contain a broad set of population-based measures based on eligibility and claims data supplied to the state's APCD along with other statewide data sources. These adult and pediatric profiles, for the first time, combine data from all major payer types (i.e., commercial, Medicaid, and Medicare), add ACO payment and reporting measures, integrate data from Vermont's DocSite clinical registry, and add population health measures based on the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), a survey conducted annually by the Vermont Department of Health.
