Abstract

The purpose of this analysis is to examine the effect of the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) as established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. This includes an analysis of the implementation process and the intervention development. The analysis includes five cases of the Kaiser Foundations Hospital, and an assessment using principles established by the American Hospital Association. The finding shows that the CHNA is a useful tool for identifying community needs with a focus on access, affordability, and quality of health care. Further, it establishes the importance of collaboration in identification of the problems and in thedevelopment of interventions.
