The Wyoming Institute of Population Health is a division of Cheyenne Regional. Its purpose is to help Wyoming communities and their healthcare providers develop a more proactive approach to patient care and population health management. This is done by reaching out to the residents of communities across Wyoming, beyond the traditional four walls of a hospital or a clinic to address the challenges of caring for frail or vulnerable populations and rising chronic disease rates, and delivering evidence-based preventive health services.
Each year, the Institute endows the community with a number of financial grants and benefits, including charity care for individuals who are unable to afford their medical bills.Community Benefits
The Institute plays a key role, in partnership with the Laramie County Community Partnership, to integrate community resources in order to meet the healthcare needs of the community. Goals and strategies are set, and thereafter completed by focused action teams.Community Health Improvement Plan
Every three years, a comprehensive study is done in Laramie County to determine the primary needs and/or gaps in the community—regarding healthcare, education, housing, and more. The findings are gathered into a document (titled, “Laramie County Needs Assessment”) that is shared with residents and stakeholders across the county.Laramie County 2018 Comprehensive Community Needs Assessment
