3.Community Needs Assessment (CNA) Report: We worked with the three DSRP PPSs in our region and county health department teams to support information that was publicly available to complete our report.  In order to improve the health of the region's Medicaid population, we identified hot spots throughout the lower Hudson Valley where we can make healthcare services better. A detailed review of the existing health, social and economic information about our region enhanced our ability to identify DSRIP projects that focus on individuals and communities most in need.
