Live Healthy Lane – Community Health Needs Assessment

| May 7, 2014


2015 Community Health Needs Assessment:

Live Healthy Lane’s 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a collaborative project between United Way of Lane County, Lane County Public Health, PeaceHealth Oregon West, and Trillium CCO. Improving the health and well-being of Lane County is core work of the partnering organizations. The overall goal of this process is capture a full picture of our community’s health and identify key priority areas where the community (including you!) can then take action.

To maximize impact, community involvement is vital at each phase:

1. Create a shared vision (Summer 2015)

  • Over 130 community members convened for the June 25, 2015 county-wide simulcast Community Health Visioning Session to brainstorm what a healthy community looks and feels like. Draft results are now available for download: Visioning Results Summary. The community health vision statement and values are as follows:
    • Live Healthy Lane: Working together to create a caring community where all people can live a healthier life.
      • Compassion – We are creating a community where all people are treated with dignity and respect.
      • Equity – We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a healthy life.
      • Inclusion – We strive to embrace our differences and treat the whole person.
      • Collaboration – We have committed our collective resources to innovation, coordination, and integration of services.

2. Conduct community assessments to gather and analyze data (Summer 2015 – Fall 2015) about the community health status, the local public health systems, community strengths and themes, and forces of change in Lane County.
