The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is partnering with Olathe Medical Center and Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) to assess community health needs. As part of the new federal healthcare reform law (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), non-profit hospitals are required to perform a community health needs assessment (CHNA) every three years. Results of this assessment will provide guidance to address current and future healthcare needs for each hospital’s primary service area. Assessment topics include current health practices and healthcare perceptions such as delivery and access to services.
