Utilizing the Community Health Needs Assessment as a Tool for All Funders

Across the country tax-exempt hospitals are required to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every 3 years to identify priority health issues in their local communities. Following that report, hospitals must develop a Community Health Implementation Strategy plan (CHIS) outlining actions, resources, planned collaboration and anticipated impact for addressing priorities identified through the CHNA. These reports provide valuable insights for all community stakeholders into the needs facing communities and can guide interventions for the next three years. Funders can use this publicly available data and analysis as tools to direct their giving toward the greatest needs in their communities.

Join UW Health and UnityPoint Health – Meriter from Madison to hear how they have collaborated with community partners for the CHNA and in developing their CHIS. Participants will learn how UW Health and UnityPoint Health – Meriter have developed equity-based community giving programs aligned with their CHNA priorities. The program will discuss how funders can lean into the research already completed by health systems to guide their own giving and create collaborations.
