ACA ruling mandates Community Health Needs Analysis. Isn’t it time you got started?

ACA ruling mandates Community Health Needs Analysis. Isn't it time you got started?

 

The Supreme Court has spoken. And though the justices may not have the last word on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (politicians are still debating), their ruling means the ACA is now the law of the land and hospitals must take action to satisfy its requirements.

 

One of the new requirements states that not-for-profit, charitable hospitals must conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) once every three years and develop a plan to meet the health needs of the community.

 

Like many hospitals, you probably have questions about the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Implementation Plan requirements. Perhaps you’re wondering if your facility has the staff or time to complete the assessment and implementation plan. Perhaps you aren’t sure when your specific assessment and implementation plan must be completed.

 

This is where CHC Consulting can help.

 

At CHC Consulting, we take a flexible approach in working with our clients. We can complete the entire community needs assessment from start to finish or provide assistance in certain areas such as:

  • Data collection
  • Conducting one-on-one interviews, focus groups or surveys
  • Writing the report after your facility has completed the analysis

To learn more about the CHC Consulting Community Health Needs Assessment process and how we can help you meet the new regulations, contact David Domingue at ddomingue@communityhospitalcorp.com or visit the Community Health Needs Assessment page on our Website.
