Evaluation Methods

Every three years, Texas Health conducts a comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) of its service area to guide investments, programs and services that facilitate health equity and improvement.

To identify specific needs, we conduct focus groups, interview key stakeholders and facilitate listening sessions. We also analyze quantitative public health data from various sources (e.g., Texas Department of State Health Services, Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council, Healthy Community Institute and County Health Rankings) to identify trends and gaps. These insights are used to deploy improvement strategies or secure grants for specific health interventions.

Community Health Priorities

The prevailing issues in the communities served by Texas Health include:

  • Mental and behavioral health
  • Chronic disease management and prevention
  • Access, health literacy and navigation

We are tackling these challenges through Community Health Improvement programs and Community Impact grants.

2022 Highlights

Texas Health:

  • Expanded the 2022 CHNA from 16 counties to 20, identifying 56 total high-need ZIP codes (i.e., higher poverty rates). We are deploying practical, community-driven strategies to drive improvements and remove barriers to care.
