How to Use the Map

The CHNAFinder is designed to provide users the opportunity to:

  • Identify and compare trends in priority health needs—in your community and state and across the country.
  • Connect with other health care organizations and community stakeholders working to tackle the same priority health needs
  • Foster stronger partnerships with patients, families, other health care organizations and community stakeholders.
  • Build healthier communities and improve population health.

ACCESS

CHNAFinder features a map tool that is accessible to AHA member organizations only. If you are from an AHA member organization, log in on the top right corner or click “Search CHNAs” below. Please use your hospital or business email address to login or create a user account.

Navigate through the map to look up any nonprofit hospital in the country with a community health needs assessment by name, location or priority need. The map allows you to locate hospitals with similar priority needs and directs you to the hospital’s CHNA for more information. Some features on the map include:

  • Switch between two versions of the map tool
  • Use the filters to gather data on multiple hospitals and states and compare priority health needs
  • Set a lasso to highlight multiple hospitals on the map
  • Access each hospital's or health system's website and CHNA
