We offer a variety of data products and tools to assist health centers and PCAs with improving performance, articulating value, measuring impact, and planning for growth.
Sustainability and Growth Planning
State and Local Market Assessments analyze service areas in geographic, demographic, and economic terms, helping health centers evaluate and determine current and future patient needs and helping PCAs/HCCNs identify areas of unmet need in the state for future planning.
Scenario Modeling helps forecast the impact of changing patient care models and revenues based on payment reform. Evaluating potential scenarios helps health centers better plan for impacts on operations, including patient utilization, care delivery, and service offerings.
