Community Health Needs Assessment

A Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a systematic, data-driven approach to identifying barriers and gaps in services and resources that improve the health and well-being of community residents. The CHNA process assists Cone Health in aligning its resources, programs and strategies with the priority needs of the community.

Every three years, Cone Health works with community partners in Alamance, Guilford and Rockingham counties to assess the social, medical and economic health of our communities. This year – for the first time – Cone Health presents this information in a regional Community Health Needs Assessment format.

The CHNA process consists of data analysis, prioritization of needs and the development of implementation plans. In addition to meeting the IRS requirement for tax-exempt hospitals to conduct a CHNA, we use this document to guide our work in the following identified priorities:

  • Prevention of Chronic Disease, Especially Diabetes
  • Prevention of Addiction and Promoting Strong Mental Health
  • Access to High Quality, Affordable Healthcare
  • Promoting Living Conditions that Contribute to Health
  • Eliminating Bias and Discrimination in Healthcare

Cone Health’s priorities mirror the concerns pinpointed in each county’s individual assessments – Alamance, Guilford, Rockingham. View our action plan that we developed on how we plan to address these priorities. It is through this exhaustive examination and purposeful work that we will achieve the true health and well-being that our community deserves.
