It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of our new Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP) Investment Strategy.  This is the second iteration of our commitment to the Central Oregon communities we strive to serve.  In this updated model, the RHIP Workgroups are empowered and tasked with improving the metrics found in the RHIP.  The Central Oregon Health Council (COHC) Board has an overall RHIP improvement metric goal of 75% for our region.  The updated structure diagram can be found here on our website.  Please note the investment strategies listed as key tactics within the new structure.  It is certain and critical that we continue to work collaboratively, and both leverage and invest in each type of resource we are so fortunate to enjoy.  We look forward to your continued involvement and thank you for your patience while this new and improved process was developed.
