WHA Resource Spotlight: Community Health Needs Assessment Dashboard
Do you know about the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Dashboard Tool? It is a WHA member benefit tool that allows hospitals and their community partners the opportunity to identify areas of need in their community through the comparison of clinical conditions and community characteristics.
The CHNA Dashboard incorporates American Community Survey data from the US Census Bureau Data, blended with WHA Information Center discharge claims data. The hope is when hospitals work through their tri-annual community health needs assessment and identify areas of improvement, they can use this as one of their tools in the toolbox.
To find the CHNA Dashboard, log into the WHA Member Portal and click the “Resources” tab to find the dashboard.
