Community Health Assessment (CHA)
Developing Insight Using Narrative and Numbers
The CHA process is a best practice that Jefferson County engages in every 4-5 years to document community member insights, and to scan comparisons between state and county data to identify anomalies between our rural county and Washington State. Together the qualitative and quantitative data can highlight red flags, opportunities and progress. These results are brought forward as one piece that will inform Jefferson County's 2020 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) update effort.
