What are some benefits of an outside consultant for the Community Health Needs Assessment and ISR? In this video, Kelsey Anderson, Strategic Healthcare Analyst at Carnahan Group responds.
When you engage a consultant like Carnahan Group, you’re working with community benefit subject matter experts. They have an unparalleled understanding of the 501(r)(3) regulations, and also how the IRS is currently enforcing them.
We are really experienced in working with health departments and public health experts. We have a very deep understanding of the current trends in community health and that sort of enables us to speak the language of these local public health officials while we collect primary data.
Also, having a third-party conduct those types of intimate stakeholder interviews one-on-one does kind of build a sense of confidence with those stakeholders. They trust that the resulting report is a little bit more free from bias.
