A Guide for Planning and Reporting Community Benefit (2015 Edition with 2017 Update) link

Updated for 2015 with a 2017 Update to Chapter Four on Accounting, CHA's A Guide for Planning and Reporting Community Benefit provides a comprehensive framework for health care organizations desiring to develop a more strategic approach to planning, delivering and reporting on community benefit programs.

This resource includes guidance on meeting federal requirements for tax-exempt hospitals to conduct community health needs assessments and adopt implementation strategies to meet identified needs. The Guide also includes guidelines for reporting information on the IRS Form 990, Schedule H for Hospitals as well as valuable information from community benefit and public health professionals about leading practices in community health improvement.

This resource is primarily for staff who plan, develop and implement community benefit programs. However, in most organizations community benefit efforts involve many departments. This resource can be used by board and executive leaders, as well as staff in mission, finance, organizational planning, population health management, communications, patient registration, patient advocacy, pastoral care, social services, clinical and legal offices involved in community benefit and outreach.

The Guide is organized around the basic components in community benefit planning, implementation and reporting:

  • Getting Started.
  • Understanding What Counts and Does Not Count as Community Benefit.
  • Building a Sustainable Infrastructure.
  • Accounting for Community Benefit.
  • Planning and Implementing Community Benefit Programs.
  • Evaluating Community Benefit Programs.
  • Communicating the Community Benefit Story.

The Guide has numerous links to additional tools, examples and resources that can be accessed on the CHA website.

Assessing and Addressing Community Health Needs (2015 Edition) link

Updated to reflect IRS final rules issued on December 31, 2014.

Responding to the health needs of our communities, especially to the most vulnerable among us, is central to the mission of Catholic and other not-for-profit health care organizations. To do so, we need to have an understanding of community health needs and use a deliberate approach for addressing those needs.

The importance of assessing community health needs and developing an implementation strategy to address selected needs was reinforced by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act), enacted March 23, 2010. The law added new requirements on tax-exempt hospitals to conduct community health needs assessments and to adopt implementation strategies to meet the community health needs identified through the assessments.

CHA, in collaboration with VHA and the Healthy Communities Institute, developed this resource to help not-for-profit health care organizations strengthen their assessment and community benefit planning processes. Using CHA’s previous work, the experience of community benefit professionals and public health expertise, this resource offers practical advice on how hospitals can work with community and public health partners to assess community health needs and develop effective strategies for improving health in our communities.

This resource was developed especially for the hospital staff responsible for conducting or overseeing community health needs assessments and planning community benefit programs.

Others with an interest in community health may find this book useful as well. These could include staff within the organization such as administrators, clinicians and strategic planners, and community partners such as policy makers, consumer advocates, public officials and representatives of community groups.

Evaluating Your Community Benefit Impact (Printed Hardcopy) link

It is essential to evaluate community benefit programs in order to improve programs and ensure the effectiveness of actions taken to address significant health needs in the community.

Community benefit program evaluation is important for compliance reasons as well. The Affordable Care Act added requirements for tax-exempt hospitals to assess the health needs of their communities every three years. The federal regulations implementing those requirements specify that hospitals need to include in their community health needs assessment (CHNA) reports an evaluation of the impact of actions taken to address the significant health needs from their immediately preceding CHNA report (Treas. Reg. § 1.501(r)-3). The intent of these requirements is to increase transparency and accountability around tax-exempt hospitals' obligation to improve community health.

This CHA resource, developed in collaboration with VHA and the Healthy Communities Institute, is designed to help community benefit leaders take a systematic approach to evaluating and improving their programs and to meet their legal requirements by applying the knowledge and experience of public health program evaluation to community benefit programs.

While the resource is primarily geared to staff members who work in the area of community benefit, it can also be used by others who need to understand how to assess evaluation findings and use those findings in their work.  Other groups that may find this information useful include trustees; executive leaders; strategy; population health; finance and communications staff; community partners; and program participants.
