Community health assessments (CHAs) identify key health needs and issues through systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis.
Community health improvement plans (CHPs) are long-term, systematic efforts to address community health issues, needs and priorities based on the results of community health assessment activities and the community health improvement plan process. Both CHAs and CHPs require significant partner, stakeholder, and community engagement. General definitions and information about CHAs and CHPs are available on the
CDC Public Health Systems & Best Practices website.
CCOs are required, per Oregon Revised Statue and CCO contract, to complete a CHP, based on a CHA, at least every five years. CCOs are also required to submit annual CHP progress reports. CCOs are also required to submit supplemental questionnaires along with their CHA, CHP and CHP progress reports. Full questionnaire templates are available on the
Guidance and Training webpage.
