MeasureOpportunity for ImprovementHistory/Current StatusActionDocumentationResponsible StaffAccomplish by Date The required documentation includes monitoring progress in meeting performance measures and a description of the progress made on health indicators as defined in the plan. The primary constraint for meeting this measure is related to the newness of the plan. That said, the plan and the updates could be improved if the objectives and strategies/interventions were written as SMART, and rather than simply aiming to decrease or increase a particular activity, the plan could set specific targets; for example, increase by x% from x to y, etc. RiverStone Health conducted Community Health Needs Assessments in 2005, 2010, and 2014 in partnership with the local hospitals (The Alliance). Following each needs assessment, a plan to improve the health of the community was written using community engagement. The 2014 CHIP is currently being written and the strategies will be written as SMART objectives. Reports of progress for the 2010 CHIP will be provided. In December 2013, a presentation to the Alliance on the health priorities and outcomes occurred comparing the results of the 2005, 2010, and 2014 Community Health Needs Assessment. Work groups were formed following the development of the 2010 CHIP and developed work plans which were updated in March Report of CHIP progress Meeting Minutes Attendance PowerPoint 2014 CHIP update which includes; work plans, progress, updates and revisions March Shawn Hinz, Director and Heather Fink, Coordinator for Community Health Improvement March 2014 Action Plan

Action Plan Measure Opportunity for Improvement History/Current StatusActionDocumentation Responsible Staff Accomplish by Date Example 2 Required Documentation Source of Evidence- based practices To seek out and utilize evidence-based or promising practices that are aligned with the 10 Essential Public Health Services The Healthy By Design Coalition is led by RiverStone Health, and Alliance partners Billings Clinic and St. Vincent Healthcare. There are 5 active workgroups: Healthy Weight, Worksite Wellness, Health Equity, Built Environment, and Recognition Program that all embrace 5210 messaging. 5 fruits/vegetables, 2 hours or less of screen time, 1 hour of physical activity per day, and 0 sugary beverages. This 5210 messaging is centered around our work to decrease obesity and chronic disease (a priority of our current CHIP) and evidenced by the success of the “Let’s Go Maine” program and referenced in many CDC resource lists. See below To assure consistent messaging of the 5210 model a train the trainer program will be developed and implemented to include sanitarians, and immunization staff.
