Community Health Needs Assessment 


2013 Community Health Needs Assessment

OneMaine Health, a collaboration between Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, MaineGeneral Health and MaineHealth released Maine's first comprehensive, statewide community health needs assessment in April, 2011. The three health systems are working with Maine hospitals and Healthy Maine Partnerships to host local forums to share the information, begin discussions and develop action plans based on the report's findings.

The community health needs assessment examined health status, use of health services, access and barriers to care and other factors affecting the health of Maine people. The in-depth report will help communities make decisions about the future of healthcare and prevention in their areas by identifying how their communities compare to the state on many dimensions of health. The findings point out several major health issues facing Maine, including chronic disease care (e.g. diabetes, heart disease and respiratory disease), cancer rates, levels of obesity, smoking and illicit drug use, and access to dental and mental health services.
