Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center in Poteau is seeking the community’s input on a Community Needs Assessment for 2022.
What is a Community Health Needs Assessment?
A Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a systematic process involving the community to identify and analyze community health needs. The process provides a way for communities to prioritize health needs, and to plan and act upon unmet community health needs.
CHNAs may be conducted by a variety of organizations. Each Critical Access Hospital (CAH) must conduct a CHNA once every three years, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. Local public health units seeking to gain or maintain accreditation must conduct a Community Health Assessment every five years. Many methods exist for conducting an assessment, but generally include:
• Stakeholder meetings
• Community focus groups
• Interviews with community leaders
• Population health and other health-related data
We are asking for your help. Please take this quick survey and tell us your opinion.
The cutoff date for the survey is January 28, 2022.
