Community Needs Assessment reported for Minnie Hamilton Health System.

This study has two purposes.  The first, is to meet the requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), Public Law 111-148 enacted section 501(r) of the Code, which imposes additional requirements on charitable hospital organizations.  Section 501(r)(3) requires a hospital organization to conduct a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (“CHNA”) at least once every three years and to make the CHNA widely available by placing it on the hospital’s web site.  You can access by going to our links page and clicking on Community Needs Assessment 2013                               The second and ultimately more important purpose, is to provide the hospital with a document that highlights the data findings, outlines key needs in the hospital’s service area, and provides direction and opportunities for action through the adoption of an implementation strategy to meet those needs. This CHNA looks at health status, barriers to care, and other demographic and social issues affecting people and organizations throughout Calhoun and Gilmer counties and is intended to help improve the health of the area’s residents.


Minnie Hamilton Health System, in both Grantsville and Glenville, has received Level 3 Recognition from the Patient-Centered Medical Home 2011 (PCMH 2011) program by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships.

The patient-centered medical home is a model of care emphasizing care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.” Research shows that medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and improve patients’ and providers’ reported experiences of care. The PCMH indentifies practices that promote partnership between individual patients and their personal clinicians, instead of treating patient care as the sum of several episodic offices visits. Each patient’s care is tended to be clinician-led care teams, who provide for all the patient’s health care needs and coordinate treatments across the health care system. Medical home clinicians demonstrate the benchmarks of patient-centered care, including open scheduling, expanded hours and appropriate use of proven health information systems.

“The patient-centered medical home raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and partnerships between clinicians and patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “PCMH Recognition shows that Minnie Hamilton Health System has the tools, systems and resources to provide their patients with the right care at the right time.”

To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, Minnie Hamilton Health System demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements embodying characteristics of the medical home. The standards are aligned with the join principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.

Minnie Hamilton Health System met key program components in the following areas:

·         Written standards for patient access and continuity of care

·         Use of patient feedback materials

·         Appropriate use of charting tools to track patients and organize clinical information

·         Responsive care management techniques with an emphasis on preventive care for individual patients and for the entire patient population

·         Adaptation to patient’s cultural and linguistic needs

·         Use of information technology for prescriptions, test and referral tracking and coordination with other health care providers

·         Use of evidence-based guidelines to treat chronic conditions

·         Measurement and reporting of clinical and service performance

Letter to the Public

Minnie Hamilton Health System and our staff are working diligently to assure that we are prepared to recognize, quarantine, and stabilize patients that would present with possible Ebola.  However, we do not feel that Ebola is a threat to our community at this time.  We are remaining vigilant and conducting surveillance as recommended by health officials, the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At this time, as a community it is important for those with fever, cough, and flu symptoms to try to stay home, avoid crowds, and wear a mask if symptomatic and going out.  This will help prevent the spread of illness during, not only this risked outbreak, but also during flu season.

For further information feel free to contact us at 304-354-9244 or the Mid Ohio Valley Health Department at 304-354-6101 or 304-485-7374.
