The healthcare strategy of Anoka County SHIP works to create better health in the community together by linking clinics to community organizations. 

SHIP promotes a system of screening individuals entering a healthcare setting, offering advice and counseling, then referring to evidence-based programs. This referral will lead to increased access to evidence-based community programs.
