The Johnson County Healthcare Center is asking the community to help them compile information for a Community Health Needs Assessment, which is updated every three years.
At the Hospital Board’s last meeting, CEO Luke Senden discussed the matter with the board.
According to CDC.gov, a community health assessment (CHA), or a community health needs assessment (CHNA), refers to a state, tribal, local, or territorial health assessment that identifies key health needs and issues through systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis, which can then be used to compile a community health improvement plan (CHIP).
The CHIP is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on the results of community health assessment process and the community health improvement process.
A plan is typically updated every three to five years.
