What is a Community Health Needs Assessment?

As part of the new requirements for not-for-profit hospitals, every facility is required to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years and put together a plan to meet the community needs that the assessment identifies.

Every community has different health care needs, including diabetes management, obesity and weight loss management, chronic illness, substance abuse, sexual health, and more.

That's why our assessment team pulls together a broad set of health care consumers from each service area to help us identify the health needs of each individual community.

 

How Does OSF HealthCare Use This Information?

After the data is collected and each community's health needs are prioritized by greatest need, administrative and caregiver teams at OSF work together to further support current community-based health programs and services as well as starting new programs to help meet the needs for each community.

For example, if diabetes management is shown as a major concern in one of the communities we serve, we might look at current diabetes screening and education programs and see how we can better support those programs or even look at new services and facilities like one of our OSF Diabetes Care offices.

2013 Reports

At OSF HealthCare, we believe that an informed patient is an engaged patient. That's why we are sharing all of our Community Health Needs Assessment reports for all of our hospitals across the OSF Ministry.
