The purpose of this study is to develop health promotion performance indicators and analyze the health promotion effects of public health care posts.
A number of previous studies and existing health care assessment indicators were used to develop health promotion indexes for public health care posts. The health promotion effects were classified and analyzed according to the developed evaluation indicators. The effect of pre-and post-health promotion program were analyzed using blood pressure and blood glucose level.
The health promotion performance indicators of public health care posts are classified into structure, process, and result. In particular, the indicators of health promotion results are suggested as health life practice, chronic disease management, infectious disease management and population health management. The health promotion effect was analyzed according to these indicators; smoking, drinking, exercise, obesity, oral health, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, depression, cancer, vaccination, dementia management, and elderly activity limit reduction. Blood pressure and blood sugar data were analyzed to measure the before and after effect of using the public health care posts. The blood pressure and glucose control rate for public health care post users are higher than the results of Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The severity of hypertension was also lower than the severity data reported in the National Health Insurance. The high control rate of hypertension and diabetes suggest that public health care posts perform health promotion programs efficiently for residents in medical vulnerable areas.
In order to measure more valid and reliable effects, it is necessary to manage and measure the health promotion evaluation indicators presented in this study.
