The Walter Rand Institute is excited to announce that, through a competitive bidding process, we have earned the right to conduct Inspira Health Network’s next community health needs assessments in Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem counties.
This work is central to WRI’s mission and helps advance our work in population health on behalf of the region. We are excited about the opportunity.
WRI has proposed a sophisticated and engaging approach to what is often a formulaic, compliance driven pursuit. Mandated by the federal government every three years for nonprofit hospitals, many community health needs assessments produce sit-on-the shelf information that does little to inform or alter hospitals’ approach to their service regions.
WRI’s approach is at once deeply community driven – resulting in a shared inclusive process — and methodologically sophisticated, where primary data collection and analysis happens hand in hand with secondary data analysis and we employ advanced analytical techniques not available to most firms.
The result is actionable rich information that identifies hard to detect local and regional patterns and is owned by the community as well as the health network.
WRI is proud to partner with a truly mission driven operation such as Inspira Health Network.
