community health assessmentThe Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process is designed to give a current snapshot of the needs and resources as perceived by the community members, organizations, businesses, municipalities and other stakeholders. The CHNA process is a collaborative effort between all three local hospitals, Wake County Human Services, Wake Health Services, United Way of the Greater Triangle, and Wake County Medical Society Community Health Foundation. The process includes citizen surveys, focus groups, and secondary data collection, and culminates in a strategic planning process that generates an action plan for the county, hospitals, and community partners.

The Community Health Needs Assessment must be conducted every three to four years by health departments, tax exempt hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and United Way agencies. As a part of the process in Wake County, a steering committee is formed to help support the process, communicate information, and give feedback. The purpose of the Community Health Needs Assessment is to identify health status, concerns and resources in Wake County, report findings, determine priority issues, and develop a community-based action plan that is measurable. The Steering Committee will meet four times over the next ten months and the process will culminate with a report.

Chris also participated in the 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment process. For more information on the process and to view and download past reports, visit: here.
