Workforce Planning Tool

Since 2008, Minnesota hospitals and health systems have submitted demographic data to MHA. The workforce planning project collects data on 40 direct patient-care job types across 11 demographic attributes. With this data, MHA produces an annual statewide summary of Minnesota’s current health care workforce. The annual statewide summary is available to all members on MHA Member Resources. In 2021, 98 hospitals submitted workforce data.     

MHA developed a custom Workforce Planning Tool for members. The online tool allows participating members to view their individual data through different analyses and to compare it to their specific region and to the statewide results. Nonparticipants can only access the statewide data.
