Community Health Improvement Plan

Live Well Washington County
The Live Well Washington County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a community work plan. It outlines how community partners across many different fields will address priority health issues that were identified by local data. The plan is developed using information about best practices to ensure that research supports the chosen strategies. The process engages partners from across the community in order to utilize community expertise, knowledge and resources. 

Through a community health assessment, Washington County community partners identified three priority areas for the 2014 Washington County CHIP:
CHIP advisory committees were formed to develop and implement goals and strategies for each priority area. The common foundational goals across these three committees are to improve health equity, strengthen the focus on prevention, and improve partnerships and collaboration.
