The health care system continues to undergo dramatic shifts with the advent of the Affordable Care Act. Hospitals are under new pressure to lower costs, improve health outcomes, and advance health equity. Increasingly, hospitals’ community health needs assessments (CHNAs) have been seen as vehicles to promote equitable communities and address the upstream factors that contribute to poor health. This webinar explored the range of strategies hospitals are using to incorporate the social determinants of health into CHNAs and discussed how funders can partner with hospitals to support these efforts. Speakers included: Matthew Ingram, Independent Consultant, Elizabeth Ripley and Melissa Kemberling of Mat-Su Health Foundation, Yanique Redwood of the Consumer Health Foundation, and Pamela Schwartz of Kaiser Permanente.
