WE HAVE DATA.
The Northern Michigan Community Health Innovation Region (NMCHIR) aligned with MiThrive to complete a comprehensive assessment of needs in Northern Michigan communities. We are excited to release the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment. In this report, we wanted to pinpoint the most pressing health issues in our communities and describe what more can be done to improve the well-being and health equity in the 10 county region. This report was developed with extensive cross-sector collaboration and community voice using the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process.
We know that it takes all of us working together across sectors to improve community conditions that impact health across Northwest Michigan. By clarifying our shared priorities and desired outcomes in this Shared Outcomes Framework*, we aim to help answer the questions: what are we collectively working toward as a Northwest Michigan community, and how will we know if we’re making progress? Learn more at www.mi-thrive.org.
*A Shared Outcomes Framework is a best practice tool to communicate shared community priorities and to track progress toward goals, allowing for continuous improvement in the pursuit of equity. Our framework includes time-bound targets for six priority areas, themed within three system elements, and specifies metrics we can use to determine whether we’re on track for meeting our goals.
