Reports to Inform Decision Making

Over our long history of working with health centers, Capital Link has amassed an enormous amount of national data on the health center industry, particularly financial and operational data. We maintain a database of almost 10,000 health center audited financial statements and Uniform Data System information from 2005-2017, incorporating approximately 75% of all health centers nationally in any given year. This proprietary database is the only one of its kind and enables us to create analytical data reports to help health centers understand and improve their financial and operational performance and prepare for changing reimbursement models.
