What is it?
Addressing the Needs of the Community
Promoting and improving the health and well-being of the rural communities they serve has long been an important mission of critical access and other small, rural hospitals and their affiliated healthcare organizations. ICAHN's Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process provides hospitals with the information they need to fully identify the broad health needs of their communities and assure their efforts are best aligned in every way reasonably possible to the needs of those they serve.
The CHNA provides a comprehensive look into future healthcare trends by organizing community stakeholder focus groups and reporting on their findings and gives critical access hospitals the opportunity to identify and address the area's most pressing healthcare needs.

What ICAHN Offers
ICAHN utilizes a systematic, data-driven approach to complete the CHNA process. ICAHN facilitates all phases of the projects and will help hospitals coordinate arrangements for focus groups and other group meetings.
Our experience allows us to provide hospitals with a well-coordinated process and successful outcome at a modest cost.
