Determining Community Needs.
RMS Healthcare understands that the creation of a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is not only intended to meet the requirements of the IRS to maintain the status of tax exempt or “charitable” status, but is also a tool used to identify and prioritize health issues and develop targeted interventions to build healthier communities.
RMS Healthcare has extensive experience in partnering with hospitals and health systems in the development of Community Health Needs Assessments, Implementation Plan strategies, as well as partnering with Community Health Departments in the development of collaborative Community Health Assessments (CHA).
Why You Do It.
Hospitals are given a Community Need Index (CNI) score which takes into account the economic and structural obstacles affecting your community’s overall health (factors such as income, healthcare accessibility, education, insurance, housing).
