Community Health Assessment

In 2018, Jackson Care Connect was part of a collaborative of organizations, including hospitals, Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) and public health departments, that worked together to conduct a regional Community Health Assessment, or CHA, in Jackson and Josephine Counties. The CHA was a year-long process to collect, assess and analyze information about the health of our community. This assessment helps guide planning and action to improve health in Jackson and Josephine Counties.

In addition to primary and secondary research, community members shared their perspectives through interviews, focus groups, public forums and a community-wide health survey.

Community Health Improvement Plan

A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a community-based blueprint for improving population health and health system performance. It lays out a long-term, strategic effort to address health-related issues in our community. It outlines ways multiple organizations will contribute to addressing the community's priorities to improving overall community health and well-being.

The CHIP is developed after the CHA and is informed by those results. The CHA provides data and information to identify community health issues that are prioritized by the community. The CHIP is used to describe how community stakeholders will address the health priorities identified through the CHA.

Jackson Care Connect was involved in developing the 2019-2022 CHIP for Jackson and Josephine Counties.
