Community Health Needs Assessment

The Affordable Care Act of 2010 mandates that all 501(c)(3) hospitals conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to maintain tax-exempt status. INCompliance offers essential support in developing a CHNA report and implementation strategy that adheres to this requirement. Addressing common queries, our consultant, boasting over 40 years of experience in community need identification, can assist with every facet of the CHNA process. This includes community data collection, input, and report preparation. Additionally, we provide thorough reviews of your reports to ensure compliance with all IRS requirements.

State regulations for acute care services can undergo changes without providers' knowledge or input.

Our aim is to ensure your interests are addressed and that your services remain in compliance.

Additionally, we are well-equipped to prepare your request for a waiver or variance, collaborating with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to address specific concerns. Our consultant played a pivotal role in developing the Ohio Department of Health's health care service rules and stays actively involved in any rule change process for services such as:

  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Open-heart surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Pediatric intensive care units
  • Solid organ transplantation
  • Bone marrow and stem cell transplantation

We also offer assistance with Ohio hospital registration and support the transition to Ohio hospital licensure by 9/30/2024. This includes managing changes in bed capacity and the addition or discontinuation of services.
