Community Health Needs Assessments


A community health assessment (also known as community health needs assessment is an important tool in identifying key health needs through a systematic process of data collection and analysis. Several of our education affiliates, as well as state and local governments, publish an annual CHNA that is available to the public. These reports contain important information on risk factors, quality of life, mortality, morbidity, community assets, forces of change, social determinants of health and health inequity, and information on how well the public health system provides services to address the community's healthcare needs.
