CHIP Report


 

A Community Health Improvement Plan, or CHIP, is an action-oriented strategic plan outlining the priority health issues for a defined community, and how these issues will be addressed, including strategies and measures, to ultimately improve the health of the community. CHIPs are created through a community-wide, collaborative action planning process that engages partners and organizations to develop, support, and implement the plan. A CHIP is intended to serve as a vision for the health of the community and a framework for organizations to use in leveraging resources, engaging partners, and identifying their own priorities and strategies for community health improvement.
