Davis 4 Health

Davis4Health is the Davis County community health improvement collaborative, which began in 2012. Davis County Health Department currently serves as the backbone organization of Davis4Health and provides ongoing support to maintain organizational infrastructure and sustain momentum for moving Davis4Health forward. More than 60 partners from many organizations have significant involvement and contribute staff time; facilitation and leadership; expertise; volunteers; guidance and decision-making; advocacy; data; community connections; in-kind donations; etc.

Our Mission & Vision

Improve community health through the power of partnerships, collaboration, and strategic alignment around Davis County's top health priorities; with a shared commitment toward a culture of health and well-being.

About Us

Steering COMMITTEE

The Davis4Health Steering Committee meets every six months. The group provides guidance for community health improvement efforts such as the Davis4Health Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). Community partners are invited to participate because of their work on community needs and resource assessments; access to data; work to address disparities and equity; ability to represent underserved and underrepresented community members, and/or participation in community health improvement efforts. The group began meeting biannually in 2016.

Guiding Principles

  • Priorities and strategies are determined based upon findings of Davis4Health Community Health Assessments.
  • The process is community-driven with significant involvement from a broad set of stakeholders and partners from a variety of community agencies.

Equity Alignment

In 2021, we began reaching out to many Davis4Health partners to assess systems, processes, and partnerships in place to address equity and to identify existing frameworks, documents, and performance measures guiding the work. Partners shared awareness of equity components in the CHA and CHIP and suggested working toward a more formalized equity framework/lens. In April 2022 Davis4Health partners responded to a survey where over 90% agreed that they are comfortable with Davis4Health serving as the equity collaborative for Davis County and the next CHIP (2024) serving as the county equity improvement plan.

Health improvement Process

Strategic Prevention Framework

The Davis4Health community health improvement process is modeled after the Action Cycle in the County Health Rankings (CHR) and Roadmaps. It provides steps and a path to keep partners moving with data to action.

Assess Needs & Resources

Partners work together to gather data to describe the health status of the population. They identify strengths, assets, resources, challenges, and populations experiencing disparities. Partners work together to identify assessment needs and data gaps. Reports are shared with the community as new data, disparities, and resources are combined to illuminate community issues. Assessment work is continuous.

Every 5 years a comprehensive Community Health Assessment (CHA) is completed to provide broad understanding of the factors that contribute to health, including health issues in special populations, community resources and assets, as well as public perceptions and concerns.

Focus

Together, partners decide which problem(s) to tackle. Taking time to set priorities helps direct community resources to the most important issues. Partners re-evaluate chosen health improvement priorities at least every five years.

In 2018 Davis4Health partners voted to make these issues priorities of focus: 1) Suicide; 2) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) & Trauma; and 3) Opioids. Partners also emphasized the importance of coordinating prevention efforts and efforts to improve access to services which overlap all three priorities

Choose Effective Policies

Partners select policies and programs that have been shown to work in real life and are a good fit for the community. Partners work together to revise and update the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) annually as needed. A new comprehensive CHIP containing chosen strategies, policies, and programs is completed at least every five years. The 2019-2023 Davis4Health CHIP details partners’ collaborative vision to address top health improvement priorities (2019 CHIP: https://go.usa.gov/xVdK6)

Act on What's Important

Partners work together to implement the Community Health Improvement Plan. Since there are no “one size fits all” blueprints for success, partners build on strengths, leverage available resources, and respond to unique needs as they coordinate actions to improve health. Progress is monitored and an annual report is prepared to document partners' cumulative effort.  Each year a progress celebration luncheon is held to acknowledge partners for their contributions and recognize community health improvement successes.

The Davis4Health Annual Progress Report (2020-2021) detailing our communities efforts to prevent and reduce Suicide; Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) & Trauma; and Opioid Misuse is available online, go.usa.gov/xtJkZ. In addition to community successes, this document contains data, resources, and links to community prevention activities and behavioral health services.
