Most not-for-profit hospitals have completed two to three Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs) since they became a regulatory requirement. But are they making a difference? And if not, why not?

The webinar will focus on how to make your CHNA more effective in improving the health of your community, including:  how to develop a joint CHNA with other organizations, how to engage key stakeholders and diverse populations, how to integrate the CHNA with your strategic plan, and how to use your CHNA as a platform to implement a patient-centered approach to care.


  1. Define at least two strategies for improving your CHNA process and outcomes
  2. Identify at least one strategy for using the CHNA to develop a patient-centered approach to care

 Interesting Fact:

Did you know that you can complete your CHNA jointly with public health and other hospitals in your region as a way to leverage the impact of your CHNA?
