Community Needs Assessment
The Community Needs Assessment has multiple purposes. It's first purpose 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.
It's other 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.
