This is an invitation-only meeting.

Representatives from government agencies, financial institutions and healthcare providers are invited to this special meeting to explore how they can collaborate to improve their communities.  Financial institutions have been fulfilling their Community Reinvestment Act obligations through many types of activities since the Act became law in 1977.  Tax-exempt hospitals have been conducting activities in their communities too, and now are conducting community health needs assessments (CHNAs) and implementation strategies under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  While most of the CHNAs have been completed, there is growing interest in developing implementation strategies that could make a greater impact when include other stakeholders 
 
Background
As part of the Affordable Care Act and starting this year, non-profit hospitals are required by the IRS (every three years) to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for their local communities, select priority community health needs identified in the assessment to address, and develop a plan to do so.  The Healthcare Association of Hawaii (HAH) led a collaborative effort between all local hospitals that included the analysis of community health and hospital data, key informant interviews on all islands, and findings and reports by state and county.  The State Department of Health (DOH) worked closely with HAH, lent expertise, and contributed information to the final reports.  The DOH and HAH plan to issue a joint press release of the CHNA findings in mid-July.

This meeting will provide the opportunity for stakeholders to share their perspectives on community needs and look for ways to leverage their resources for greater impact.
