The Office of Community Health & Performance Management (OCHPM) strengthens the public health system in Nebraska by working with local public health departments and community-based organizations. The office also leads the effort for sustaining the Division of Public Health's national accreditation with the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB).
Working with Division leadership and staff, a DHHS Division of Public Health Strategic Plan was created for 2017-2021. Any comments or questions may be emailed to DHHS.DPHStratPlan@nebraska.gov.
Strategic Plan 2017-2021
The State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) is a blueprint for improving the public health system (indirect impact) as well as improving specific health outcomes related to heart disease, stroke, cancer and associated risk factors (direct impact). Five priority areas include strategies and activities designed to result in positive outcomes for the system and ultimately population health. Any comments or questions may be emailed to DHHS.SHIP@nebraska.gov.
SHIP Plan - 2017 - 2021
SHIP Focus Area Dashboards "coming soon."
In 2015, OCHPM coordinated a state health assessment (SHA) using the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships process (MAPP). The qualitative and quantitative results from the SHA serve as the foundation for setting priorities for the state health improvement plan (SHIP). Below you will find the full SHA report, which outlines the assessment findings. Any comments or questions about the report may be emailed to Raheem Sanders (email@example.com).
Statewide Health Needs Assessment - 2016
The OCHPM also collaborates with all Nebraska health departments and community public health partners to do the following:
The Nebraska Healthy People 2020 presents a comprehensive review of the state of health and well-being for Nebraskans within 24 focus areas and includes current data as well as goals for 2020. While these target values represent our desired population health levels to achieve, the Healthy People 2020 is not an action plan that identifies specific strategies towards each focus area. Nonetheless, the performance of activities statewide by the state and local health departments and community partners is anticipated to improve population health in these areas.
