In 2018, Jackson Care Connect was part of a group of organizations including hospitals, coordinated care organizations (CCOs) and public health departments. The group worked together to conduct a regional Community Health Assessment (CHA) in Jackson
and Josephine counties. The CHA was a year-long process to collect, assess and analyze information about the health of our community. The CHA helps guide planning and action to improve health in Jackson and Josephine counties.
In addition to research, community members shared their thoughts through interviews, focus groups, public forums and a community-wide health survey.
