About CHIP

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) has been under way for about four and one-half years. It started with a community health assessment, completed in 2014. This assessment took a broad look at the health data available for the community. It was used to help a team of stakeholders make choices about setting priorities in the development of a health improvement plan. The resulting priorities are mental health and chemical dependency; immunizations; access to care; and chronic disease prevention and management (healthy living).
 
After identifying them, work teams were formed to begin development in each of these areas. The teams created structured frameworks to address these specific issues. The frameworks then became the basis for the Community Health Improvement Plan, which was approved by a joint board comprised of members of the Jefferson County Board of Health and the Jefferson Healthcare commissioners. This plan is available to view from a link on the Jefferson County Public Health website. (http://www.co.jefferson.wa.us/378/Community-Health-Improvement-Project-CHI )
