Executive Summary1.1 Introduction1.3 Prioritized AreasThe Ventura County Community Health Needs Assessment Collaborative (VCCHNAC)is pleased to present its 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). Asfederally required by the Affordable Care Act, this report provides an overview of themethods and process used to identify and prioritize significant health needs in theVentura County CHNA Collaborative (VCCHNAC)’s service area. The Ventura CountyCHNA Collaborative partnered with Conduent Healthy Communities Institute (HCI)to conduct the CHNA. The goal of this report is to offer a meaningful understandingof the most pressing health needs across VCCHNAC’s service area, as well as to guideplanning efforts to address those needs. VCCHNAC believes that “health starts longbefore illness, in our homes, schools and jobs; that all Ventura County residentsshould have the opportunity to make choices that allow them to live a long, healthylife, regardless of their income, education or ethnic background.” (A New Way toTalk about Social Determinants of Health” RWJF Vulnerable Populations Portfolio,2010). Special attention has been given to the needs of vulnerable populations, unmethealth needs or gaps in services, and input from the community. Findings fromthis report will be used to identify, develop, and target the Ventura County CHNACollaborative initiatives to provide and connect residents with resources to improvehealth outcomes and quality of life in Ventura County.To thrive, everyone in the community needs to be given theopportunity to live a long, healthy life, regardless of his orher background or socioeconomic status. The conditionsof the physical environment where people live, learn, workand play present a wide range of health risks and outcomes.The VCCHNAC is committed to supporting environmentsthat protect and promote the health and well-being of residents equitably.1.2 Summary of FindingsThe CHNA findings in this report result from theextensive analysis of primary and secondary datasources; over 241 indicators from national andstate data sources were included in the secondary analysis and primary data was collected fromcommunity leaders, non-health professionals,community based organizations, communitymembers and populations with unmet healthneeds and/or populations experiencing healthdisparities. The main source for the secondarydata, or data that has been previously collectedby the government and other health agenciesto inform health planning, is the Health Mattersin Ventura County platform, a publicly availabledata platform. That platform can be found here: County Community Health Needs Assessment 2019Through an examination of the primary and secondary data, the following top health needs wereidentified: Access to HealthServices Alcoholism Asthma Cancer Diabetes Drug Abuse(includingprescription drugs) Food Insecurity andPoor Nutrition Housing andHomelessness Lack of PreNatal Care andBreastfeedingSupport Mental Health Older Adults andAging4The CHNA describes barriers to experiencing health andwellness in the community and provides information necessary to all levels of stakeholders to build upon each other’swork in a coordinated manner. The VCCHNAC has developeda multi-sectoral partnership with the objective of breakingdown siloes in healthcare and identifying intersecting issues that impact the county population that all the healthagencies in the partnership serve. Based on the results ofthis assessment, VCCHNAC has categorized the identifiedpriorities into broad cross-cutting issues that not only drivemultiple outcomes, but that will offer many opportunitiesto the partners to address barriers to health and leverageshared resources. With these objectives in mind, the following five encompassing topics were identified by VCCHNACas priorities to implement: Improve Access to Health Services Reduce the Impact of Behavioral Health Issues Improve Health and Wellness for Older Adults Reduce the Burden of Chronic Disease Address Social NeedsVCCHNAC has established clear priorities based on theresults of this CHNA to improve health outcomes for theresidents of Ventura County. VCCHNAC will develop strategies to address these priorities through implementationand community health improvement planning beginningin 2019. In collaboration with community stakeholders andresidents, VCCHNAC hopes to realize its vision of becomingthe healthiest county in the nation by 2030.

Frameworks Contributing to the CommunityHealth Needs Assessment ProcessPOPULATION HEALTH OUTCOMES – VCPH monitors population health outcomessuch as quality of life, risk factors of and numbers of cases of disease, life expectancy,and death to assess the health of families in Ventura County.The Ventura County Community Health Needs Assessment Collaborative (VCCHNAC)assessment process was based upon established public health frameworks thatguide goal setting for all stakeholders engaged in the task of building healthycommunities. These guiding frameworks are discussed below.HEALTHY FAMILIES – Families need access to quality preventive and health care,including mental and behavioral health services. The health of a family is affectedby individual/genetic risk factors as well as health behaviors and conditions, nevertheless VCPH realizes that healthy social and physical environments play a greaterrole for a family in achieving overall health.2.1 The Ideal Healthy CommunityThe World Health Organization defines health as “a complete state of physical,mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”The VCCHNAC borrows and utilizes this same definition of health, previously adapted and refined by Ventura County Public Health (VCPH) in the 2016 CommunityHealth Assessment (CHA) developed by the department. The model frameworkof an ideal Healthy Community is outlined in the diagram below and illustratesdynamic interactions between various personal, social and environmental factorsin determining an individual’s health as well as the different points of interventionfor organizations working in health promotion.HEALTHY SOCIAL AND PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT – Safe and affordable housingcan support occupants throughout their life stages, promote health and safety,and support mental and emotional health. Cultural norms can influence beliefsabout health care, behaviors that contribute to food choices, attitudes regardingmental health and values concerning social status. Living in poverty and beingunemployed are associated with poor physical and mental health outcomes acrossall races and ethnicities. Neighborhood characteristics have significant impact onhealth outcomes because they influence an individual’s ability to adopt behaviorsthat promote health. People in low income neighborhoods often have less access toaffordable, healthy food options, and have more access to cheap fast-food outlets.People with higher levels of educational attainment consistently experience lowerrisks for a wide array of illnesses and increased life expectancy. Exposure to media,especially among youth, may affect health behaviors such as substance use, sexualactivity, and eating habits. VCPH wants to address these social determinants ofhealth by utilizing data to inform policy, engaging community residents and partnerorganizations, building capacity, and creating organizational environments thatenable change to achieve a healthy community.Ventura County Public Health Model for a Healthy CommunityHealthyCommunityHealth ImpactAssessmentsCommunity HealthAssessmentPublic Health’s Role inAddressing SocialDeterminants:§ Data Collection, monitoringand surveillance§ Population-basedinterventions to addresshealth factors§ Community Engagement andcapacity buildingCollectiveHealth inAll PoliciesHealth EquityEconomicOpportunityHealthy SocialImpactand PhysicalEnvironment Safe Neighborhoods andCommunitiesCulturalNormsHousingQuality Preventativeand Clinical rityIndividual/GeneticRisk c Health’s Role inAddressing SocialDeterminants:§§§Advocating for and definingpublic policy to achievehealth equityCoordinated interagencyeffortsCreating organizationalenvironments that enablechangeHealthBehaviors andConditionsHEALTHY COMMUNITY – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ‘health equity’ is achieved when every person has the opportunity to“attain his or her full health potential” and no one is “disadvantaged from achievingthis potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances.”Per the CDC, health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to“attain his or her full health potential” and no one is “disadvantaged from achievingthis potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances.”VCPH is committed to conducting periodic community health assessments andutilizing the Health in All Policies (HiAP) framework to improve the accountabilityof decision-makers to recognize the health impacts at all levels of policy-making.Quality of LifeDiseaseDeathLife ExpectancyA Healthy Community provides for a quality and sustainable environment, adequatelevels of economic and social development, health and social equity, socialrelationships that are supportive and respectful, andmeets the basic needs of everyone across the lifespan.Last Revised 2019The VCPH model for a Healthy Community helps to define those social and environmental conditions as well as public health actions — policies and communityresources — that can be taken to begin to address them.Ventura County Community Health Needs Assessment 20195

Frameworks Contributing to the CommunityHealth Needs Assessment ProcessVCPH will collaborate more with existing stakeholders and engage non-traditionalstakeholders because it is only through collective impact that we can begin to makechanges necessary to improve the health and well-being of residents and makeVentura County a Healthy Community.rankings are broken down into two categories: health factors and health outcomes.Health factors (i.e. educational attainment and access to care) and health outcomes(i.e. disease and death) help to measure the current health status of a population.VCCHNAC, in partnership with VCPH, will work toward making Ventura Countythe healthiest county in the state and nation by 2030. Per the County Health Rankings, in 2019, Ventura County ranked 9th out of 57 counties in California for healthoutcomes and 18th for health factors. Ventura County has been declining in thehealth factors ranking for the last few years, and this is largely driven by physicalenvironment indicators such as air pollution particulate matter, housing issues,and transportation. There is still much work to be done to improve overall healthand well-being.To improve population health outcomes, we need to shift the focus from addressinghealth factors to addressing the social and environmental determinants of health.VCCHNAC reaffirms the model of VCPH and believes that a Healthy Communityprovides a quality and sustainable environment adequate levels of economic andsocial development, health and social equity, social relationships that are supportiveand respectful, and meets the basic needs of everyone across the lifespan.2.2 Healthy People 20202.4 Organizational Community Health Needs AssessmentRequirementsHealthy People 2020 (HP2020) creates a strategic framework that unites healthpromotion and disease prevention issues under a single umbrella. It provides us withthe opportunity to engage a wide variety of stakeholders to achieve the objectivesset forth and guides national research, program planning and policy adoption topromote health and prevent disease.Health Assessments have been conducted by health agencies — hospitals, localhealth departments, and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) — for manyyears individually to guide their work in communities. The Patient Protection andAffordable Care Act (PPACA), tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) requires hospitals to conducta Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years with input frompublic health experts and community members, and develop and adopt an implementation strategy. At the same time, local health departments that are preparingfor the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) process are required to conductstrategic planning, including a Community Health Assessment conducted everyfive years, and a corresponding Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. §254b), the authorizing legislation of the Health Resources & Services Administration’s (HRSA) Health CenterProgram, requires health centers to perform a similar exercise to demonstrate theneed for health services, a shortage of personal health services, and commitmentto operate where the greatest number of individuals residing in the service areacan be reached. These coinciding requirements of health agencies offer an idealopportunity for hospitals, health centers and health departments to work togetherin defining priorities and addressing health challenges within the community theyshare. The opportunity to align goals and combine resources and efforts is whatled to the development of the VCCHNAC, which together commissioned the assessment defined in this report.Most importantly, this framework requires tracking of data-driven outcomes tomonitor progress and focus our interventions. The fundamental goal of HP 2020is that we have a society in which all people live long, healthy lives. To achievethis goal, Ventura County must think about how the social environment, physicalenvironment, biology and genetics, access to health services and individual behavior all play a role in population-based health outcomes. Within this assessment,VCCHNAC is striving to identify population health disparities categorized by race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, age, disability status, sexual orientationand geographic location.VCCHNAC will be evaluating and monitoring the Healthy People 2030 topics andobjectives as they become available.2.3 County Health Rankings and RoadmapsThe Population Health Institute from the University of Wisconsin has developedcounty health rankings by state, including California (University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019).

Introduction3.7 Evaluation of Progress since Prior CHNAThe CHNA process should be viewed as a three-year cycle (Figure 3). An importantpart of that cycle is revisiting the progress made on priority topics from previousCHNAs. By reviewing the actions taken to address priority areas and evaluatingthe impact of these actions in the community, an organization can better focus andtarget its efforts during the next CHNA cycle.FIGURE 3: CHNA PROCESSAnalyze Data &Community InputEvaluate ActionsTaken3.8 ConsultantsThe Ventura County Community Health Needs Assessment Collaborative (VCCHNAC)commissioned Conduent Healthy Communities Institute (HCI) to conduct its 2019Community Health Needs Assessment.
