The purpose of this project was to measure the quality of community health improvement plans and processes (CHIPP) in Wisconsin and to identify factors associated with higher quality CHIPPs. The CHIP Quality Measurement Tool was developed, tested and implemented to measure the quality of Wisconsin’s CHIPPs. A comparative analysis was done to determine factors that may predict the quality score of Wisconsin’s CHIPPs.
