Organizational Community Health

Florida Department of Health in Pasco County

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.

Community Health Collaborative

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.

Collective Impact

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.

Community Health Improvement Plan

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) was devised by analyzing, sharing, and reviewing local and state-level data that reflect the health of the community. Recent community meetings, collective impact meetings, have identified focus areas to address collectively.

To improve health, Pasco’s Community Health Improvement Plan will focus on the following areas: 1) Health and Well‐Being; 2) Healthy Babies; 3) Infectious Disease; and 4) Access to Care over the upcoming years.
