UWPHI Website Facilitates Health Improvement Collaboration Statewide
The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute has compiled community health needs assessments (CHNA/CHA) and community health improvement plans (CHIP) from hospitals and health departments across the state into a website for easy access: http://www.improvingwihealth.org.
This website is organized to allow people interested in a particular health priority area to identify other communities across the state that are also working on that priority.
