MiHIA continues to align population health initiatives across counties to optimize positive outcomes
MIHIA REGIONAL COMMUNITY
HEALTH IMPROVEMENT PLAN
Throughout 2017 and 2018, the MiHIA Population Health Team began, and completed, a regional health needs assessment process with an overall goal of identifying the most pressing needs and priority areas within the 14-counties of its service region.
The Team then developed its three-year Regional Community Health Improvement Plan (RCHIP) to provide guidance and strategies for addressing data-driven priority health issues. The RCHIP sets forth a plan of action for collective impact with MiHIA serving as the vital backbone organization.

POPULATION HEALTH is defined as “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group.” It is an approach to health that aims to improve the health of an entire human population. In an ever-changing environment, MiHIA continues to align population health initiatives across counties to optimize positive outcomes.
COMPOSITION AND AFFILIATION
A multi-stakeholder group of aspirational leaders in medical, public health, behavioral health, health education, and social service organizations seek to foster relationships across sectors; building clinical-community linkages, team-based models of care, and the regional approach to a community health needs assessment, creating/implementing health improvement plans, encourages and contributes to positive population health. Guests, subject matter experts, and community members are welcomed to attend on an as needed basis.
