IBIS-PH Custom Query Introduction

Welcome to the IBIS-PH interactive query system. This system allows users to query public health datasets directly. The information is intended to support evidenced-based decision making in Utah to plan and improve service delivery, evaluate health care systems, and inform policy decisions. Other uses are not permissible.

Getting Started

Follow these four basic steps to query a dataset. For examples see the tutorials below.
  1. Select a dataset from the menu buttons on the left.
  2. Click on a blue bar and drill down to select a measure to query.
  3. Follow the steps to build your query.
  4. When you are done building your query, click "Submit Query" in the last step to get your results.

User Help

Use the HELP button at the left for information, instructions, and examples. Help buttons throughout the query modules also provide information necessary to make specific query-related selections.

Data Stewards are those individuals responsible for the various datasets available in the IBIS-PH Custom Queries.

See the IBIS-PH Query System Tutorials to view the list of tutorials available.
