Community Health Planning & Statistics

Florida Department of Health in Osceola County

From 2010 through 2012, the Osceola Health Leadership Council lead the development of a comprehensive, county-wide Community Health Assessment. The process utilized two nationally recognized approaches--Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) and Community Balanced Scorecard (CBSC) for Managing Public Health Strategy. Over 75 health care professionals, government leaders, non-profit leaders, service providers, business owners, faith-based organizations, grass-roots leaders, and citizens of Osceola County came together at the Osceola Summit on Health in 2010 and 2011 to contribute to the Community Health Assessment process. Information also was obtained directly from community residents through opinion surveys conducted door-to-door and at various health fairs and community events.

The main objectives of our Community Health Assessment are:

  • To define a vision for the health and well-being of Osceola County
  • To complete a comprehensive assessment to accurately define our health issues
  • To identify key strategies to address our health issues
  • To take action to create positive health outcomes
Based on our community health assessment process, the Osceola Health Leadership Council identified four overarching strategic objectives that are our highest priorities for health improvement:
  • Maximize resources and engage community partners in developing solutions
  • Improve the delivery and quality of healthcare using evidence-based best practices
  • Increase access to a primary care medical home
  • Reduce diabetes and cardiovascular illnesses

A companion document, based on the Community Health Assessment, is the 2013-2016 Osceola Community Health Improvement Plan. In the Community Health Improvement Plan, the Council has identified measures and performance targets for the four strategic objectives, and will implement action plans to address them over the next three-year period.
