Population health and status assessment
My health system produces 6 Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) every cycle. Our community is defined as Ada County and Canyon County (Idaho) which has a combined population of approximately 581,288 people (as of 2015). In addition to research, our teams collaborate internally and with the community to determine what we can plan to better meet the needs of our community. During this module, I worked with two of our community directors to learn about what they do and how they find opportunities to serve the people of Idaho. Reaching out to my organizational leaders in this area contributed greatly to my positive learning experience.
