     RFGH has collaborated with the Maine Shared Health Needs Assessment & Planning Process (SHNAPP)

    Project - a collaborative of Central Maine Healthcare, Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, MaineGeneral Health,

    MaineHealth and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The SHNAPP works to improve the

    health status of Maine residents and track results. RFGH has had active representation on the Community

    Engagement team of the project and has actively participated in identifying forum focuses and developing

    feedback opportunities from the forums.

    The collaboration of the entities above for the SHNAPP is an expansion on the OneMaine Health Collaborative of

    2007 and 2010. The key goal of SHNAPP: to “turn data into action”. RFGH appreciates the “Project” work,

    resources, data, and outreach to hospitals. Being involved at this level has aided our community assessment

    work and community engagement. People and organizations throughout Maine have been sharing work,

    resources, and data and sharing the information from the State of Maine through a universal tool, the SHNAPP

    Community Engagement Reporting Form.

    As part of the work of the SHNAPP, a qualitative statewide stakeholder survey was conducted in June 2015.

    Qualitative data (data that can be arranged into categories which are not numerical, also referred to as

    categorical data) was collected from 1,639 individuals representing more than 80 organizations and businesses

    across the State of Maine. Out of the 1639, 102 stakeholders were from Somerset County, representing

    community leadership and health experts. The survey asked the respondents many questions. The tables below

    are summaries of just a few of the questions.

    Key results from the statewide survey of stakeholders are listed in the table below (not all inclusive of results)

    numerator = 1,639. Stakeholders included medical care providers / hospitals, nonprofit or social service

    agencies, public health, business owners and employees, educators, other health care organizations, behavioral

    / mental health providers, local government, other governmental agencies, youth serving organizations, faith

    based organization, and other.
