Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a comprehensive approach to assessing the multiple factors that contribute to individual and community health, identifying priorities and actions that capitalize on the strengths in our community as well as addressing gaps in services and barriers to optimal health. This Plan is the culmination of year long process that began by engaging residents and members of many agencies, businesses, and organizations. These individuals reviewed data from the community resident survey, data indicators for chronic diseases, health behaviors, social, economic, and environmental factors, health care system capacity and functions of the public health system. In the end, over 80 community members representing 30 organizations assisted in the development of our community health priorities and action plans.
