Assessment and planning

Local public health assessment and planning cycle and deliverables: The Local public health assessment and planning cycle aims to help local health departments assess and prioritize the health needs of their communities, assess and prioritize their own internal capacity to meet those health needs, and develop action plans to meet those needs.

County Health Rankings & Roadmaps: The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The County Health Rankings are not produced or published by the Minnesota Department of Health.

Health plan collaboration plans: Minnesota's licensed health plans must submit a plan to the Commissioner of Health describing how they will collaborate with community health boards and other community health-related organizations to achieve high-priority public health goals in the communities they serve. Collaboration plans promote an exchange of information that allows the public and private sectors to begin to identify areas of mutual interest and work together on high priority health problems in a community.



Community of practice for community health assessments and improvement plans: Join the MDH CHA-CHIP community of practice to build capacity around conducting, developing, and implementing a community health assessment (CHA) and community health improvement plan (CHIP).

Minnesota statewide health assessment: The Minnesota statewide health assessment is produced every five years in collaboration by the Minnesota Department of Health and the Healthy Minnesota Partnership.
