Monitoring Health Status
The SSCHC Response
The SSCHC is committed to the creation, dissemination and periodic updating of a Community Health Profile (CHP). In order to create an effective profile, the SSCHC will:
- Collect community health data every three years in order to monitor progress towards health-related objectives
- Compile and periodically update a CHP using community health data
- Promote community-wide use of the CHP and/or assessment data and assure that this information can be easily accessed by the community
Each profile will contain information specific to Southern Strafford County. By monitoring this data on a regular basis, the SSCHC will be better able to identify priority public health concerns.
