Organizational Community Health
Organizational Community Health focuses on the overall health of the community and strives to facilitate change through public participation. On this page you will find information on the development, implementation, and accountability for the 2017-2020 priority areas.
The Community Health Collaborative is the umbrella for the collective impact. It is comprised of six board members who will assist with overcoming barriers and connecting coalitions with additional resources/partners when needed. These meetings will occur biannually. Currently scheduled for January and July of each year. During these meetings, the Community Health Improvement Plan Priority Area Teams and Community Coalitions are encouraged to report on goal progress, barriers to implementation, and gaps in resources.

The Florida Department of Health in Pasco facilitated four Collective Impact meetings between September 2016 and March 2017. The group discussed key health issues: infectious diseases and related issues, overall health and well‐being, health needs of vulnerable populations, access to health care services, family welfare, tobacco use, human trafficking, mental health, and adult substance abuse and drug overdose. Group members then condensed and prioritized these key health issues resulting in a consensus on health and well‐being, healthy babies, infectious disease prevention, and access to care as the priority areas that will be addressed over the upcoming years.
