As an integral part of their community, hospitals have a tremendous opportunity and responsibility to be involved in the improvement of the health of their community.
In an effort to best meet the needs of the communities served, hospitals should connect with their populations to gain insight into the community's health and how they can best meet their needs.
A well-executed Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) goes well beyond compliance and adds value to any community and hospital system.
Stratasan takes hospitals through a 5-stages CHNA process:
- Market Research Analysis
- Secondary Research
- Primary Research, including focus groups, phone surveys, etc
- Community Engagement via a Community Health Summit
- Community Reports suitable for hospital's website
