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.

Annual Progress Report
The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) process is a continuous, triennial cycle that assesses our community’s health; prioritizes our top community health needs; and plans, implements, and monitors/evaluates strategies to improve our community’s health. The progress report captures the highlights of projects completed in the first year of implementation, by the stakeholders/task force groups involved in the CHIP process. The full report includes progress, successes, challenges and next steps for each overarching strategy and CHIP priority for each of the task force groups. The CHIP Annual Report (Visual) shares the narrative part of the annual report with videos, quotes, and data.
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.
