How’s and Why’s of a Community Health Needs Assessment August 26, 2016

The How’s and Why’s of a Community Health Needs Assessment
Louisiana Hospital Association
LHA Conference Center
Baton Rouge, LA 

Join HORNE Healthcare Senior Manager Amie T. Whittington, CPA, and Consultant Barry Plunkett as they present The How’s and Why’s of a Community Health Needs Assessment to the Louisiana Hospital Association.

Nonprofit hospitals are now required to prepare an analysis of community health needs as a result of the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act (PPACA - Section 9007(a). The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) must be conducted every three years and adopt an implementation to meet the needs identified. You should be familiar with the requirements of the assessment in order to provide assistance where needed. The assessments are in depth and complex, and must include: input from a broad interest in the community and must be made widely available to the public; must provide an implementation strategy to meet and report on the unmet needs and reasons for the gaps.
