HCM calls on residents for Community Health Needs Assessment
Hill Country residents will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the health care needs of the community in July as Hill Country Memorial conducts its Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
Any resident wishing to participate will also be able to connect to a web-based survey linked at www.surveymonkey.com/r/HillCountryCommunitySurvey.
Other data will include:
- Existing demographic data (birth rates, income, health factors)
- Community surveys and conversations with representatives of related organizations
- Input from health care professionals, including frontline staff and primary care providers
After all data is collected, it will be analyzed to identify the top 10 health needs of the community. From that list, the HCM Stakeholders will prioritize at least three initiatives to take action on. Plans are for the final results to be posted to the public by the end of the year.
The survey is especially important this cycle, according Phelps.
“There are several questions about our covid response locally, and what our community did about a threat of this magnitude,” he said. “We as the community health care provider really want to get that answer.”
Phelps added this is not a marketing survey nor a solicitation for support.
“It is very important that we hear your voice, because this will help determine where we allocate our resources going forward. It is a chance for everyone in our community to be heard.”
