Community Health Needs Assessment

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) now requires that all nonprofit hospitals must complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) at least every three years. Strategy Solutions offers an entire menu of services and training programs to support hospitals and health systems that follow best practices to keep your organization up to date with requirements.


Best practices that Strategy Solutions integrates into our CHNA process include:

  • Education programs/briefings regarding IRS CHNA regulations and emerging CHNA and Population Health Management Trends 

  • CHNA Facilitation and Project Management that meets all IRS requirements 

  • Implementation Strategy Development (including “Connecting the Dots” to business and revenue generation strategies)

  • Analyzing the "social determinants of health" | Secondary Data Elements
  • Staff Technical Training and Capacity Building (to conduct CHNAs)

  • Outcome and Impact Measurement System Development Support (including “Connecting the Dots” to population health management strategies)

  • Annual/Tri-Annual Evaluation Process Management 

  • Community Benefit Practice Evaluation 

  • On-line “interactive” resource mapping

  • Ensuring that your hospital is compliant with website posting guidelines

Strategy Solutions will custom design your CHNA process to meet the needs of your organization or community. Our team is specialized in developing effective strategies to help organizations grow and thrive.
