Community Health Improvement Dashboard

According to Minnesota Department of Health, Office of Performance Improvemen, a Community Health [Needs] Assessment provides the foundation for improving and promoting the health of the community. Olmsted County's 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) identifies and describes the top 5 factors that affect the health of Olmsted County population, and factors that determine the availability of resources within the community to adequately address health concerns.

 Through the assessment process, Olmsted County Community Health Improvement Plan identifies and describes the health status of the community; factors in the community that contribute to health challenges; and existing community assets and resources that can be mobilized to improve the health status of the community.

The Community Health [Needs] Assessment, therefore, assures that local resources are directed toward activities and interventions that address critical and timely public health needs.

By working with various community workgroups, this Community Health Beam website aims to supplement official information contained in the Olmsted County Public Health website.
