The Maine Shared Health Needs Assessment & Planning Process (SHNAPP) Project - a collaborative of Central Maine Healthcare, Eastern Maine Healthcare System, MaineGeneral Health, MaineHealth and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention - works to improve the health status of Maine residents and track results.
The goal is to create a framework and approach for a Shared Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that can:
- Address community benefit reporting needs of hospitals,
- Support state and local public health accreditation efforts, and
- Provide valuable population health assessment data for various organizations concerned with the health of Maine’s communities and citizens.
SHNAPP has DRAFT Shared CHNA reports that are available now for review and input. Drafts of the State report and the Kennebec County report can be downloaded and comments submitted to us from this site. We appreciate all of your feedback.
