In 2015, a new process of conducting a statewide community health needs assessment, called the SHNAPP (Statewide Health Needs Assessment Planning Program) was launched. County-level Community Health Needs Assessment reports were produced in 2016; going forward these reports will be used to inform community engagement and action planning by hospitals, state/local governments and other partners. Central Maine Health Care, Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, MaineHealth and the Maine CDC are contributing financial support to the study and reports.
