The MassCHIP program updates our Instant Topic reports throughout the year as we receive new data and other important information from our data stewards. 

MassCHIP staff add this new data to our in-house custom query tool.  To accomplish this task, MassCHIP staff create a new version of the tool to allow the data to become available to MDPH data analysts.

The new data is also populated into our Instant Topic reports.  The most recent version of the in-house MassCHIP query tool is v3.00 r331. Instant Topic reports that contain the most recently updated data are highlighted in Table 1 below.   

Table 2 contains a list of all datasets stored within the MassCHIP in-house query tool.  The highlighted rows in Table 2 indicate the most recently added updated datasets.
