Community Health Assessment

Community Health Assessment / Windshield Survey

 

A community health assessment (sometimes called a CHA), also known as community health needs assessment (sometimes called a CHNA), refers to a state, tribal, local, or territorial health assessment that identifies key health needs and issues through systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis. Community health assessments use such principles as;

 

· Multisector collaborations that support shared ownership of all phases of community health improvement, including assessment, planning, investment, implementation, and evaluation

 

· Proactive, broad, and diverse community engagement to improve results

 

· A definition of community that encompasses both a significant enough area to allow for population-wide interventions and measurable results, and includes a targeted focus to address disparities among subpopulations

 

· Maximum transparency to improve community engagement and accountability

 

· Use of evidence-based interventions and encouragement of innovative practices with a thorough evaluation

 

· Evaluation to inform a continuous improvement process

 

· Use of the highest quality data pooled from and shared among, diverse public and private sources.

Windshield Survey:

"A  windshield survey is an informal method used by community health nurses to obtain basic knowledge about a given community. It provides a subjective view of the various physical characteristics of a communal area as observed while driving or walking through a neighborhood.
