Community Health Needs Assessment and Improvement Planning top agenda

(Portland, OR) – In a continued effort to reduce health disparities, promote health equity and improve overall population health, a workgroup of Health Share’s Community Advisory Council will work on prioritizing the community health needs identified through initial findings from Health Share’s community health needs assessment (CHNA).

Date: Friday, February 17, 2017

Time: 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm  

Location: Central City Concern - 232 NW 6th Avenue, Portland, OR 97209 (Sally McCrackin Room)

Agenda: Available online one week prior to each meeting

Coordinated care organizations (CCOs) are required to conduct a CHNA and implement a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHP) based on the CHNA every five years, with the next assessment to be finalized July 2017.

Community health needs for the Tri-County region are identified through a community-wide process conducted by Healthy Columbia Willamette Collaborative (HCWC), of which Health Share is a member. Attendees will review a summary of prioritized health issues identified through the 2016 assessment and identify whether the findings resonate with the experiences of members.

The meeting is open to the public and Health Share members are encouraged to attend.

Reasonable accommodations will be provided as needed for persons with disabilities. Those needing accommodations should contact Rebecca Naga at rebecca@healthshareoregon.org or (503) 416-4964 at least 48 hours before the meeting.
