Community Health Needs Assessment – The Implementation Plan –

Host: Carolyn St.Charles, RN, BSN, MBA – Chief Regional Clinical Officer and Julie Haynes – Strategic Planning Consultant, HealthTechS3
Date and Time:    August 2, 2019 at 12:00 pm CT

The implementation plan is one of the most important steps of the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process.  Regulations require that an implementation plan must be completed within 4 ½ months after completion of the CHNA.  The 4 ½ months is intended to provide time to research evidence-based strategies and to collaborate with community partners to develop a plan that can impact and improve community health.

The presentation will focus on the role of social determinants of health, how to research and develop effective strategies, and to engage the community and key stakeholders in developing the plan.


Upon completion of the webinar, the participant will:

  1. Be knowledgeable on expanding reimbursement opportunities in primary care
  2. Identify at least source of one evidence-based approach for improving community health
  3. Describe at least two elements of a successful implementation plan

Interesting Fact:
Eighty percent of what affects health outcomes is associated with factors outside the traditional boundaries of healthcare delivery—health behaviors (tobacco use, sexual activity), social and economic factors (employment, education, income), and physical environment (air quality, water quality).
