Annual Cohort Reports

Minnesota Medical Cannabis Program Annual Cohort Reporting System

  • This collection of reports presents information regarding participants’ experience in the program, organized by annual cohorts of initial patient enrollments. The program became operational July 1, 2015, so the annual cohorts are patients who enrolled for the first time between July 1 of one year and June 30 of the subsequent year. The same analysis results are presented for each annual cohort and for the aggregate of all annual cohorts combined. Because some analyses require multiple months of observation time after a patient’s enrollment, results for a given annual cohort are not added to this reporting system until approximately 18 months after the end of the cohort year.

Early Survey Results from the Office of Medical Cannabis - May 2016

  • This report shares results from surveys of patients who enrolled in the program during its first three months and their certifying health care practitioners. A focus of the survey is a rating by the patient of overall benefit and overall negative impact to them from their participation in the program - and parallel assessments by the patient’s certifying health care practitioner. Respondents were also asked to describe the benefits and the negative impacts. Make sure to spend some time reviewing the appendices, where the respondents’ own words are shared.
