The History of the CHA/CHIP process in Stutsman County
The Jamestown Regional Medical Center is required to do a Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) every three years as part of Health Care Reform legislation. Central Valley Health District is required to do a CHA and CHIP every five years to receive and maintain national accreditation from the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). Since both the Jamestown Regional Medical Center's and Central Valley Health District's CHA/CHIP overlap and the community and partners we serve are the same, we have worked together to do one every three years.

Community Health Assessment (CHA): A process that engages with community members and the Local Public Health System (LPHS) partners to systematically collect and analyze qualitative and quantitative health-related data from a variety of sources within a specific community. The findings of the CHA are presented in the form of a community health profile and inform community decision-making, the prioritization of health problems and the development and implementation of community health improvement plans.

Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP):
An action-oriented plan outlining the priority community health issues (based on the community health assessment findings and community member and LPHS partner input) and how these issues will be addressed, including strategies and measures, to ultimately improve the health of a community. The CHIP is developed through the community health improvement process.

CHAs and CHIPs are useful processes for challenges of:
• Rising health care demands
• Limited resources
• Maximizing efficiency and quality of health care services
