Community Assessment of Needs (UI-CAN)

Community Assessment of Health Needs UI-CanUI Health has performed three community health needs assessments in recent years. These 2013, 2016, and 2019 reports identify and prioritize the health needs in the communities we serve, and they include discussion of physical and mental health conditions, challenges in accessing care, and the social and economic factors that impact health.
