Community Health Needs Assessment & Health Plans

Joint 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment

The McLean County Health Department, OSF HealthCare St. Joseph Medical Center, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center and Chestnut Family Health Center have collaborated together to conduct a joint Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). A CHNA is required by provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for the hospitals and by the Illinois Administrative Code Section 600.400 for McLean County Health Department to maintain local health department certification.

The goals of the CHNA were as follows:
 

  • Analyze data collectively

  • Prioritize and select the top three health priorities for McLean County

  • Generate a joint county community health needs assessment document to be used as a resource for the community

  • Work collaboratively with other key community stakeholders to develop implementation plans for each of the top three health priorities, culminating in a joint Community Health Improvement Plan by February 2020 that covers a 3-year period, 2020-2022.

The McLean County Community Health Council was formulated in April of 2015 to serve as the advisory body for the collaborative CHNA. The Council now consists of 58 individuals from 39 organizations representing 11 sectors, including healthcare, public health, social services, city/county planning, housing, transportation, education, business/economic development, faith, law enforcement and civic organizations/service clubs. The following three health priorities were selected by the McLean County Community Health Council after analysis of the 2019 McLean County Community Health Needs Assessment:

  • Access to Appropriate Care

  • Behavioral Health (including Mental Health and Substance Abuse)

  • Healthy Eating/Active Living (HEAL)

IPLAN 

2012-2017 McLean County Community Health Plan and Needs Assessment



Prior to the collaborative CHNA process described above, the McLean County Health Department completed the Illinois Project for Local Assessment of Needs (IPLAN), a community health assessment and planning process that is conducted every five years by local health jurisdictions in Illinois. Based on the Assessment Protocol for Excellence in Public Health (APEX-PH) model, IPLAN is grounded in the core functions of public health and addresses public health practice standards. A component of the IPLAN process is the development of a Community Health Plan (CHP) that identifies strategies to address the top health priorities in our community.

The top three health priorities identified in the McLean County CHP 2012–2017 are as follows:
