Strategic Goals that serve the Community

Yamhill Community Care uses a few different plans to help guide its work. These plans are aligned with other plans in the community, with each other, and with rules from Oregon Health Authority. These plans are a way to measure how well YCCO is doing in a variety of areas, both clinical and community, and to make sure there is continued improvement.


The YCCO Strategic Plan

The 2016-2019 Strategic Plan is the overarching plan that covers all CCO strategies.

Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) and the Community Health Assessment (CHA)

The Council (CAC) gathers data and creates a plan 

  • A Community Health Assessment (CHA) surveys YCCO members and county residents. Questions about health coverage; community needs; health care use; environment and social factors; children and families are included. Download the CHA below.
  • A five-year plan (Community Health Improvement Plan or CHIP) is developed using the survey responses.
  • The CHIP identifies top health concerns in six key areas, as well as methods to reach the goals. Download the final plan below.

The CHA contains national, state, and local data used to create a better understanding of community needs. This document is fully shared with Yamhill County Public Health and Providence Newberg Medical Center. The CAC led a process to collect information about local issues, based on a series of focus groups and a community survey. It identifies the healthcare needs of the Yamhill County-area community members who will be served by YCCO. This assessment was used to create the Community Health Improvement Plan.
