Community Health Needs Assessment

KRH Default
A Community Health Needs Assessment is a systematic approach to the collection and analysis of health data used to identify and describe outstanding community health needs, inequities in health and access to services, and to determine priorities for the most effective use of resources to address identified needs.

The Health Care Reform Legislation (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) requires nonprofit hospitals to perform a community health needs assessment every three years and adopt an implementation strategy to meet the outstanding community health needs identified in the assessment as a condition of maintaining the institution’s federal tax exemption.
