Community Health Needs Assessment FY13

Each MemorialCare Medical Centers conducted a community health needs assessment (CHNA) in FY13. This CHNA meets the California state law and the new federal requirements under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act 2010. The CHNA incorporates secondary data from existing sources such as the 2010 Census, cancer registry and the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), and primary data collection from community members and identified key informants who represent the medically underserved, low-income, minority populations, and populations with chronic disease. Through an examination and review of these data, health needs were identified. The health needs were prioritized through a structured process using defined criteria. This Implementation Strategy addresses the health needs identified through the CHNA.
