The CHNA toolkit is a free web-based platform designed by a collaborative body in response to the IRS requirement outlined in the Affordable Care Act. This tool was built to assist hospitals and organizations seeking to better understand the needs and assets of their communities as well as collaborate to make measurable improvements in community health and well-being.
