CalAIM All-Comer Webinar – Population Needs Assessment

June 3, 2024
2:30 PM PDT

In this meeting, DHCS will provide an overview of policy guidance for the Population Needs Assessment (PNA). To support the success of the PHM Program and broader transformation efforts, DHCS has redesigned MCP requirements for developing a PNA which has historically been MCPs' primary mechanism for identifying the priority health and social needs of their members, including health disparities. DHCS now requires MCPs to meaningfully participate on local health jurisdictions’ (LHJs) Community Health Assessments (CHAs)/Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) rather than complete a separate PNA focused solely on their own members' data.

This meeting will also provide an overview of the January 2024 PHM policy guidance for MCPs to meaningfully participate on LHJs’ CHA/CHIP processes and preview the 2024 DHCS PHM Strategy Template.
