City administration worked with Alberta Health Services to outline a scope for this project. MNP was engaged to review and analyze demographics, projections, and health utilization data; analyze research from comparable communities; develop a survey; organize community meetings; and provide recommendations for Council’s consideration.
A Community Health Needs Assessment provides comprehensive information about the community’s current health status, needs and issues, and identifies potential future needs.
A Community Health Needs Assessment provides comprehensive information about the community’s current health status, needs and issues, and identifies potential future needs. By engaging with residents and stakeholders (through an online survey and community sessions for key demographics); a comprehensive analysis of community, Alberta Health Services health utilization data, population growth and demographics, and comparisons of similar municipalities and policy reviews on best practices to encourage better access to healthcare services, results will be compiled. By combining the survey results, feedback from the community sessions and data, the report will provide a comprehensive picture of the community’s needs. It is important to gauge what the community perceives and believes the needs to be, based on their immediate networks within the community, by comparing this with what data is telling us. This provides a more comprehensive picture than just looking at the numbers.
While the province, through Alberta Health Services and Alberta Health, is responsible for delivering health services to Albertans, municipalities play a supportive role by developing policies and bylaws to support community health and wellbeing. Through community health planning, the City of Beaumont is assessing current community health needs and potential future needs to support city residents as Beaumont continues to grow. By developing a community health plan, the city will be well placed to work with provincial and neighbouring municipal partners to identify and provide access to health and wellness services for residents.
Beaumont is growing at a faster pace than most other communities in Alberta, so City Council needs to continue to focus on current needs of the city, while planning for how the city will meet the needs of a larger community.
