  • Creating Alignment and Effective Implementation of State Health Improvement Plans

    Effective state health improvement plans (SHIP) must simultaneously accomplish numerous goals. In addition to engaging public health and community partners, these ambitious plans must be evidence-based and data-driven while addressing health equity and, ideally, aligning with similar plans from local and tribal health departments and non-profit hospitals. As many states advance in the next cycle of SHIP planning, the evidence base for new approaches is lacking. Leaders in the field are seeking innovative strategies to support plan alignment, enhance shared implementation, and ultimately foster mutual accountability and positive health outcomes.
