WRI is conducting Inspira Health Network’s Community Health Needs Assessments in Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties.
This work is central to WRI’s mission, helping to build collective efforts and advance population health in South Jersey.
Mandated by the federal government every three years for nonprofit hospitals, community health needs assessments often produce sit-on-the shelf information that does little to inform hospitals’ efforts in 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 rich actionable information that identifies hard to detect local and regional patterns and is owned by the community as well as the health system.
