Community Health Assessment:

Beaverhead County Public Health is seeking participation and input as the department embarks on an effort to conduct a county-wide health needs assessment. In 2009, the Montana Legislature passed House Bill 173, which encourages every Montana local public health agency to complete a health needs assessment and prepare a community health improvement plan. It is important to learn about critical needs as well as the gaps in the services public health and other entities currently offer. This information will assist in formulating a county-wide health improvement plan and associated strategies. County public health agencies across the state play a critically important role in keeping communities healthy. However, according to the Montana Department of Health and Human Services, there is currently no system in place for assuring a consistent quality, level and array of public health services. Therefore, public health agencies in Montana and across the nation are initiating a voluntary program of accreditation in order to foster better health outcomes at the local level and provide for increased accountability to the public. Conducting an assessment and formulating a plan will be key in attaining accreditation. The first meetings were held in Lima, Wisdom, and Dillon during June and July 2012. More meetings will be held the fall of 2012. Assuring a healthy Beaverhead County is a shared responsibility and improving overall public health will rely on collaborations and partnerships among a variety of stakeholders. Your participation and input is very vital to make this process work. Please call the health department for more information and how you can help.
