A community health needs assessment is a collaborative analysis of the population, resources, services, health care statuses, health care outcomes, and other data in a defined community or service area that helps identify potential health issues for improvement. Certain federal and state funders require periodic community health needs assessments, including federal grants for primary care offices and maternal and child health programs.
