Community Health Implementation Planning

Completing the community health needs assessment (CHNA) is a requirement for CAHs, but organizations that truly want to be a part of the change that improves their community's health will take it a step further and create an implementation plan. It's also an opportunity to build valuable relationships to collaborate on solutions.

Our virtual services include education, resources, collaboration training, facilitated planning events, evaluation, and best practices to ensure sustainability.

By contracting with RHI, we can assist your rural health care organization to effectively build and carry out a community health implementation plan. As the nation’s leading technical assistance center in rural health, RHI has over 25 years of experience working with rural communities, rural networks, health care organizations, and community partners.

Rochelle Community Hospital Spotlight

RHI did a very thorough job conducting our CHNA. Their expertise allowed us to get valuable feedback from our community, and they provided guidance as we put together action plans to create change. The check-in calls after the survey and community implementation planning ensured accountability and kept us on task.
