Colorado's Health Assessment is collaborative processes to collect, analyze, and present data and information that tell a timely and accurate story about our state's health status. Using multiple sources and methodologies, partners from wide range sectors are developing a comprehensive assessment that will describe current health status and demographics, measures of health equity, existing public health assets, and state and local perceptions and priorities. The widely accessible findings will provide a basis for efficiently and effectively mobilizing assets to improve the lives of Colorado's residents and visitors.
The Colorado Health Assessment and Planning System (CHAPS) was created to guide local public health agencies through the public health improvement process. CHAPS includes eight phases with tools and templates.

Colorado's Public Health Improvement Plan (COPHIP) was drafted in 2009 with input from 350 stakeholders from across the state. The 5-year statewide plan guides local public health improvement plans.
