Program Type: Promising Practice -Programs not formally evaluated (or formal evaluation is not yet complete) but identified by experts as programs with results suggesting efficacy and worthy of further study in broader pilot implementation efforts.

Get Up & Go is a local grassroots Health and Wellness Campaign that began in 2008 to help transform St. Clair County from its current status among the least healthiest counties in Illinois into one of the healthiest counties in the United States by the year 2020! In St. Clair County, achieving significant improvements in physical, behavioral and social health outcomes involves building strong collaborations within and beyond the membership of the Health Care Commission. That adds the challenges of getting multiple organizations to support a common strategy to achieve outcomes, managing the complexity of a collaborative strategy, and achieving accountability for results that require the efforts of many organizations. The InsightVision Community Balanced Scorecard [CBSC] and related tools such as strategy maps and community results compacts are expressly designed to meet these challenges In 2010, the member organizations of the Countys Health Care Commission began using these Community Balanced Scorecard tools to create strategy maps, scorecards and community compact agreements around the two themes of Healthy Eating and Active Living. These same scorecard building techniques and tools are now assisting the Commissions implementation of the MAPP Model [Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership] with the help of over 32 county-based health and human service agencies as they develop a five-year community health plan to address four strategic issues: [1] Preventable risk factors affecting chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes and lung cancer [2] Maternal & Child health issues such as infant mortality, teen pregnancy and STD prevention [3] Behavioral Health issues such as Suicide and substance abuse and, [4] Safety issues such as domestic abuse and gang-related violence. The CBSC tools are currently being developed for these four areas to establish SMART based objectives, drive performance and track progress towards achieving the desired outcomes.
