The Tulsa County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) was designed for and by residents and community partners to improve the health and well-being of all Tulsa County residents over the next three years. The mission of the CHIP is to be the healthiest county in Oklahoma.

2017 Community Health Improvement Plan

More than 65+ community partners, led by the Tulsa Health Department and Pathways to Health, have been working together to create the 2017 Community Health Improvement Plan for Tulsa County (CHIP). The CHIP is divided into two priority areas to address access to health resources and health education and education systems.

This plan was developed over the course of nine months, with input from residents and stakeholders in the public and private sector. The CHIP serves as the first step towards true community centered planning, integration, and implementation of strategies to improve our community’s health.

Health is often determined more by social factors than by medical care. Education, economic opportunities, access to resources, race and ethnicity, the environment, social and family networks all impact the health of an individual. Because of this, it’s critical to have support from everyone who can make a difference in these fields.

Community Health Needs Assessment

The Tulsa County CHNA is a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors, and needs of residents in Tulsa County. The information gained from this assessment allows the community to identify the areas of greatest concern and develop strategies to effectively target these areas in order to have the best possible community health outcomes.
