Community Health Assessments and Improvement Plans
Benton County Public Health conducts a series of health assessments and improvement plans to address the health needs of the community.
The 2018 Benton County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) embodies deep collaboration between the Benton County Health Department and diverse community partners and organizations working together to improve the health of those who live, learn, work, and play in Benton County. The CHIP outlines four priority health improvement areas for targeted work over the next five years, and serves as a guide for collective community efforts to address and measure progress.
Benton County Health Department has developed an online progress dashboard so that our community can follow along with our community health improvement work. You can access dashboard at: bit.ly/BentonCountyCHIPDashboard.
The 2017 Benton County Community Health Assessment (CHA) displays a wide range of data about health indicators and factors that influence health. This data will inform the development of the 2018 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
The 2015 Regional Health Assessment (RHA) focuses on the health of the region that includes Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties. The counties work together on many health initiatives, and this document is part of their data-informed approach to that work.
The 2013 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) shows goals and objectives for improving the health of Benton County. This has been updated, please review the 2018 CHIP.
The 2012 Community Health Assessment (CHA) is the 2012 CHA. For the most up-to-date information, please view the 2017 CHA.
