Workforce Planning Tool

Since 2008, Minnesota hospitals and health systems have been submitting demographic data to the Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA). The project collects data on 38 job types across 14 demographic attributes. With this data, MHA is able to produce an annual statewide summary and paint a picture of our current workforce. The annual statewide summary is available to all members on the MHA Member Center. In 2017, 15 health care systems and 111 hospitals submitted workforce data.

MHA launched its own in-house Workforce Planning Tool that members can now access. The online tool allows participating members to view their individual data through different analyses and to compare it to their specific region and/or to the statewide results. Non-participants can only access the statewide data.
