Cochise County residents last week started to receive the Community Health Needs Assessment in their mailboxes, and in response, the Cochise County Health and Social Services (CCHSS) team have received some questions and concerns about the survey.
The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a survey conducted every three to five years to help identify priority health needs and concerns in our community. This year CCHSS has partnered with Tucson-based LeCroy & Milligan Associates, Inc. to conduct the survey. LeCroy & Milligan Associates, Inc. is a full-service consulting firm specializing in program evaluation, technical assistance and training that is innovative, research-driven, practical and useful. Surveys of this type and magnitude are commonly outsourced to third-party experts who specialize in collecting and analyzing large quantities of raw data in a meaningful way.
The survey is funded by a federal grant which was approved by the Board of Supervisors and does not involve local tax dollars. The survey is completely anonymous and those who complete it will not have their personal data retained or used in any way.
The mailing list used to deliver the survey to Cochise County residents was compiled by LeCroy and Milligan Associates, Inc. from commercially available mailing lists and CCHSS does not have the ability to edit, remove or correct addressee information. The mailing list for this survey has no relation to voter records and was not provided by the County.
Cochise County residents should already have received a postcard with the survey link (QR code) as well as instructions to call 520-488-0167 if they would prefer a paper copy. Upon completion of the survey the first 1,500 participants will have the option to receive a $15.00 gift card. Anyone who has not received the postcard can visit the survey link here: https://survey.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3yJckwSWtHn1LtY.
The survey does not collect or request any financial or other identifying information. Cochise County thanks residents who take the time to complete this survey with their valuable input.
