Turning great ideas into healthier communities


Kevin Barnett to Present Guidance on Health Needs Assessment Reporting at Community Commons Forum

February 06, 2015

PHI's Kevin Barnett will present guidance on conducting the second round of community health needs asssessment (CHNA) reporting during a 19-minute web forum hosted by Community Commons on Wednesday, February 18, at 11 am PST. The Affordable Care Act requires nonprofit hospitals to prepare CHNA reports. 

Barnett and Roxanne Fulcher of Community Commons will focus on what's different in CHNA reporting for 2015; the importance of multi-sector collaborations for community benefit; and how the Community Commons' CHNA Toolkit makes it easy to acquire secondary data for your report.

Community Commons will also hold a second 19-minute forum on Tuesday, February 24, at 11 am PST. Its content will include how to define your service area using the Commons' Vulnerable Population Footprint; how to create a  secondary data report for a defined area; and how to save, download, and use data visualizations in your CHNA report.
