We envision a culture of continuous health improvement in our community.
The Health Improvement Organization, founded by Allegiance Health, is a collaborative of community stakeholders committed to improving the health status of the community through an integrated health improvement infrastructure that addresses Jackson’s priority health issues.
This site serves as an access point for information about the HIO, and resources for agencies and community members to get involved with the HIO’s action plan.
This year, the Health Improvement Organization (HIO), in partnership with the Cradle to Career Education Network (C2C) and the Financial Stability Network (FSN) will conduct a county-wide survey of residents—the 2017 Collaborative Network Community Survey, during the months of October and November. The purpose of the survey is to better understand the level of overall physical, emotional, educational and financial health of the community. The results will be used to help the collaborative network identify where to focus their efforts toward improving health outcomes in the community.
Research & Marketing Strategies (RMS), a market research firm based in Syracuse, NY, has been contracted to contact a random sample of households from October through November. Area residents age 18 and older can expect to be contacted through either their land phone line or their cell phone. Information gathered remains anonymous and all RMS surveyors maintain high standards for data security and confidentiality.
