HASD&IC facilitates a collaborative Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. In spring 2021, the HASD&IC Board of Directors expanded participation in the 2022 CHNA process to include every private hospital, health system, health district, and behavioral health hospital in San Diego County in a collective effort to better understand the health and social needs of San Diego Communities.
In addition, there are health briefs, which supplement the CHNA by providing additional data and information related to select findings. They are a key component of the CHNA quantitative data collection and analysis process and include data from local, state, and national sources as well as trends in hospitalization and emergency department discharges.
Research for the 2022 CHNA was guided by a health equity framework emphasizing equity, inclusion, empathy, responsibility, and accountability.
