Advice from the Experts on How to Successfully Complete Your CHNA
2022 will be a big year for Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNAs). With the requirement that they are conducted every three years, this is the year for many hospitals to undergo a systematic collection, analysis, and dissemination of information about the health of their community.
With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to gather some of the brightest minds we know, experts on how to successfully conduct a CHNA. As Stratasan’s SVP of Healthcare Strategy, and someone who has more than 10 years of experience working with CHNAs, I hosted the session alongside Dr. Stephanie Bailey, Amanda Ables, and Carol Quest. You can read full bios for each of our panelists at the end of this post.
We considered this session to be a support group for those completing CHNAs this year or even next year. It was an opportunity to hear from a panel of experts who've been there and struggled and come out the other side successful.
We recorded this session, and you can listen to it here. Below, you’ll find a transcript from this discussion, so you can reference the valuable insights shared by our panel in the weeks and months to come as you complete your next CHNA.
