Community Improvement through Enhanced Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs)
MetadataShow full item record
In this study of how Community Health Needs Assessments operate, I analyze the history behind a CHNA, the current legislation in America regarding them, and the current state of practice for conducting them. This paper will pose the questions of how a standardized self-assessment checklist for conducting a CHNA will be beneficial for hospitals, community members, and the Treasury and IRS. Based on a review of literature on the topic, previous CHNAs, analysis of existing tools, and interviews with experts, this paper will assess common issues that inhibit the CHNA process and address possible ways to alleviate them. Atlanta, Georgia will be the region of study to simplify and standardize examples and results. At present, the CHNA environment is constantly changing as the IRS adjusts the requirements based on formal comments. New literature is published daily on the topic, indicating that several groups are researching the CHNA process and seeking to provide resources and assistance to hospitals.
