Partnership4Health Community Health Assessment (CHA) 2018-2024

At least every five years, Partnership4Health conducts a Community Health Assessment (CHA) to learn more about the health of our community. Local stakeholders such as hospitals, clinics, county administrators, commissioners, community organizations, and community members are invited to engage in this process as a collaborative effort. Several data sources are utilized to develop the CHA, including community surveys developed with healthcare systems, data obtained from stakeholder meetings, data from the MN student surveys, data obtained from the MN Department of Health, and the CDC, etc. Partnership4Health facilitates an evidence-based process to identify priority health issues in our communities based on the analysis of data obtained through the CHA process; this analysis is then used to inform priority action steps for the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).

Partnership4Health Strategic Plan (2019-2024)

The strategic plan defines a community health board's roles, priorities, and direction over three to five years. It determines what the organization plans to achieve, how the organization will achieve it, and how the organization will know what has been achieved. The strategic plan guides decision-making on allocating resources and pursuing strategies and priorities. The community health board's strategic plan focuses on the entire community health board (Source: PHAB Standard 5.3 [PDF]). Read Strategic Plan (PDF).
