Increasing Transparency and Efficacy for Hospital Community Benefit Investments Nationwide
Even while community benefit is a requirement of nonprofit hospitals across the country—channeling billions of dollars into innovative projects and high-need communities—performance data on the efficacy of those efforts has been difficult to access. This inhibits evidence-based planning and challenges health equity-based outcomes.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation engaged PHIL to design and launch a new national center for Community Benefit tools, data analysis, and technical assistance, working in partnership with the Research Triangle Institute. The new Community Benefit Transparency to Action Coordinating Center will allow for better access to data, improved collaboration, and ultimately programs that are even more impactful for the communities that need them most.
