What is a Community Health Assessment?
A community health assessment is a comprehensive description of the health status of a population, accomplished by using a collaborative process of collecting and analyzing information in partnership with community members and organizations. The description of population health status includes identification of issues for health improvement and determination of factors that contribute to health issues. The community health assessment is the basis for developing a community health improvement plan. Successful use of the community health assessment requires a process for educating and mobilizing communities, developing health priorities, garnering resources, and planning actions to improve community health.
KCHP completed a community health assessment during May to November 2011, February to July 2014, and September to December 2019 using a modified MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships) framework. Data reports for each assessment are available below. Additional assessments and data reports that provide descriptions of health issues in our community are also available below.
