Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNAs)


ASR has a long organizational history of conducting Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA).  CHNA’s are nonprofit hospital required studies of health and wellbeing and a focus of ASR’s collaborative collective data process. ASR’s approach goes beyond the minimum requirements for nonprofit hospitals. The Implementation Strategy Report is a required action guide showing how a hospital will meet the needs outlined in the CHNA, while contributing to community benefits, outlined in the CHNA; showing data making a difference is a great passion for ASR.

In the Bay Area, ASR has conducted multi-hospital Community Health Needs Assessments to gain regional understanding of the data. ASR’s CHNA’s concentrate on health and wellbeing for all, areas of need, and show the impact of efforts with the goal of moving data to action and tracking progress through time.
