Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) for InterCommunity Health Network CCO (IHN-CCO) is tasked with overseeing a community health assessment and adopting a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). This CHIP serves as a beginning place for planning for the improvement of IHN-CCO members’ health and quality of care while effectively managing costs.

2019 CHIP

The CHIP was updated in June 2019. It is based on the foundational work of the 2014 CHIP and its 2016 Addendum. The 2019 CHIP borrows from and builds upon the Regional Health Assessment and the three county Community Health Assessments of Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties.

Regional Health Assessment

The Regional Health Assessment (RHA) is a result of dedicated research and collaboration with community partners, agencies, leaders and local residents of Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties. The RHA looks at conditions and factors that affect people’s physical, mental and social well-being. The research conducted will act as a guide to inform decisions, prioritize health issues, and create plans and policies to improve community health in our region.
