Description

States require community health assessments at a county or at a public health district level to identify population health needs and ultimately develop strategies to address those needs. Under the ACA, hospitals are now required to develop community health assessments to maintain their not-for-profit status. This webinar describes the steps to develop a community health assessment, including identifying data sources, and how to engage stakeholders, prioritize competing demands, and develop strategies during the process.
