Community Health Needs Assessment
In order for Ballad to serve its region most effectively, it is essential to understand each community’s individual needs. As such, Ballad conducted community health needs assessments to profile the health of the residents within its service areas. Primary data was obtained through individual surveys and focus groups with participants from the local communities, while secondary data was collated from national, state, regional, and county-specific sources.
Throughout this community health needs assessment process, high priority was given to determining the health disparities and available resources within each community. Community members from each county met with Ballad representatives to discuss current health priorities and identify potential solutions. The information gathered from a local perspective, paired with county, state, and national data, helps to communicate the region’s health situation in order to begin formulating solutions for improvement.
