SUMMARY

The Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is like no other in the nation in that it is the only statewide public-private partnership—bringing together four major hospital systems and Maine Centers for Disease Control with the goal to turn data into action in order to:

  1. Create Shared Community Health Needs Assessment Reports,
  2. Engage and activate communities, and
  3. Support data-driven health improvement plans and implementation strategies for Maine people.

The vision of the Maine Shared CHNA is that Maine Shared Community Health Needs Assessment is the tool used for health planning by all people and agencies across the state.

JSI provided data analysis and supported the community engagement process through the following tactics: implementing an in-depth needs assessment and engaging communities through forums, survey and interviews; facilitating 21 community forums across the state; compiling 200 health indicators; developing up to 26 data profiles, including one for each of the 16 counties in Maine. JSI created state, county, and public health district-level reports to support the planning process for community health improvement at the state and local levels statewide. The reports are availabel at the Maine Center for Disease Control website.
