DHHA Demand Analysis

Dates: 2010

State: Colorado

Client(s): Denver Health and Hospital Authority (DHHA)

Service: Health Care & Public Health Planning

In 2007, JSI was contracted by Denver Health and Hospital Authority's Community Health Services (DHHA/CHS) Division to determine if DHHA/CHS had the adequate capacity to meet the primary care needs of Denver County's Medicaid and low-income population as well as determine if the services were optimally located throughout the service area. In 2010, DHHA/CHS decided to update their previous study, specifically analyzing changes in DHHA/CHS's target population, patient origin, and market segment penetration. Results of the analyses were compiled into a report that included the mapping of the Health System's capacity and community demand, and was used to inform DHHA's future planning.
