Community Health Needs Assessment
Our Community Health Needs Assessment Report provides an overview of findings from a community health needs assessment (CHNA). This assessment was first initiated by IU Health Bloomington in 2012 to identify the community’s most important health issues, both overall and by county, in order to develop an effective implementation strategy to address such needs. This is a process that is repeated every 3 years. Below you will find links to the 2012 as well as the most recent 2015 CHNA.
In 2015 IU Health Bloomington Community Health collaborated with IU School of Public Health, Monroe County Health Department and ACHIEVE along with other community partners to complete the 2015 needs assessment. The assessment will be the basis for creating an implementation strategy to address those needs. This report represents IU Health Bloomington’s efforts to share knowledge that can lead to improved health and the quality of care available to their community residents while building upon and reinforcing.
