Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)
Health Analysis in East Tennessee
Community assessment is the foundation for improving and promoting the
health of community members. The role of a community assessment is to
identify factors that affect the health of a population and determine
the availability of resources within the community to adequately address
these factors. East Tennessee Children's Hospital routinely assesses
the community needs to evaluate the overall health status of the children
it serves. The information from these assessments is used to guide the
strategic planning process of the organization.
Periodically, not-for-profit hospitals are required to conduct a Community
Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and develop an implementation plan to best
serve the community's health needs.
