Community Health Improvement Resources (CHIR)

CHIR is an interactive web-based system designed to assist public health practitioners and community stakeholders with improving the health of their communities.  The system uses an evidence-based public health improvement planning process that includes information and tools to help identify and prioritize community health issues, develop partnerships to address prioritized health issues, create and evaluate community plans to impact the identified issues utilizing evidence-based interventions, and sustain community efforts to impact priority health issues. CHIR utilizes the following Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services MICA (Missouri Information for Community Assessment) tools:

  1. Community Profiles (state, regional, county and city data profiles)
  2. Data MICA (state and local data query system)
  3. Priorities MICA (interactive priority-setting tool)
  4. Intervention MICA (information, tools and resources for intervention design, implementation, and evaluation)

Intervention MICA provides information on how to identify and develop evidence-based interventions to address priority health concerns, including colorectal cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and physical activity and nutrition to prevent obesity.
