A community health needs assessment (CHNA) is a vital planning tool to guide community health improvement efforts, inform population health management and enhance your care delivery model.

Conducting a comprehensive needs assessment is an essential first step in community health improvement. By defining the community you serve and identifying health needs, disparities, and existing resources, you will enhance your care model to improve quality and value. This intersection will create an effective collaboration maximizing the impact on population health.
