The University of Chicago Medicine has completed Community Health Needs Assessments in order to improve the health of residents in the medical center's service area. The Community Health Needs Assessments are a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors and needs of these residents. A Community Health Needs Assessment is required by the Affordable Care Act and provides information so that communities may identify issues of greatest concern and decide how to allocate resources to address those areas, thereby making the greatest possible impact on community health status. University of Chicago Medicine, in collaboration with the Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council, sponsored the report.
