CHIP - Community Health Improvement Partnership
A CHIP is a strategic plan for the community - it is a process of systematically identifying priority health issues for Marion County and formulating a plan for addressing these issues. It is important that all areas of the county be represented, because we know that each community is unique. A variety of individuals and organizations in the community should accept responsibility for implementing elements and strategies related to the CHIP because it should be a community-wide effort. Because of the current state of the economy, we will be looking at making small changes that are sustainable and cost-effective.
The Community Health Improvement Planning Process includes a broad participation of community partners from around the county (4 regional CHIP work groups: Salem-Keizer, Silverton area, Woodburn-North Marion County area, Stayton/Canyon area) who are involved in assessing, planning, prioritization of health issues, strategy development process, and implementation of strategies.
