CHA/CHP guidance for CCOs
In 2020, based on CCO 2.0 recommended policies and updated Oregon Administrative Rules, CCOs will be required to have a shared CHA/CHP with local public health authorities, hospitals, other CCOs and tribes that share service areas. To support that change, CCO Guidance: Community Health Assessments and Community Health Improvement Plans
provides guidance to CCOs regarding how OHA defines a “shared” CHA/CHP and when their next CHA/CHP deliverable is due. If you have questions, please contact Anona Gund
Planning a collaborative CHA and CHP for your unique community
In 2018, the Transformation Center provided a CHA/CHP training for CCOs to partner with local public health and Tribal health departments, hospitals and local mental health authorities to collaboratively develop CHAs and CHPs. If this training becomes available again in the future, it will be announced here. The training is built on best practices from several industries; the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships mode; and previous state CHA/CHP alignment work. All training resources are available in the table below. If you have questions about the training or available resources, please contact Anona Gund (firstname.lastname@example.org).
