Resources & Data

Resources & Data

As the state association for Louisiana's Federally Qualified Health Centers, we work hard to collect and analyze healthcare data. While providing a clear picture of the work being done at health centers, FQHC data also proves useful when engaging in advocacy and educating the community about the value of the health center model.

Health Center Dashboard

The Louisiana Primary Care Association's Health Information Technology team is working hard to keep you updated and informed using the latest reporting and data visualization technology! LPCA's Louisiana Community Health Center Dashboard gives you the opportunity to learn more about the work of Louisiana's Community Health Centers, important metrics that matter, data, and statistics. Whether conducting research for a grant application or engaging in advocacy, this dashboard can be helpful in any number of ways!

Uniform Data System Report

HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care's Uniform Data System (UDS) tracks a variety of information, including patient demographics, services provided, clinical indicators and utilization rates. UDS data are collected from HRSA health centers and reported at the grantee, state, and national levels. The data are used to improve health center performance and operations and to report overall program accomplishments. The Uniform Data System (UDS) provides annual data snapshots, demographic trends, and data comparison tools which allow for state-to-state and state-to-national comparisons. Data is presented in a variety of tables and charts, and can be exported into Excel to facilitate public use.

Economic Impact Reports

Produced annually, economic impact reports measure the effect a health center's current operations and future growth have on the community it serves. LPCA and member health centers use these reports to educate policymakers, seek community support, and pursue funding opportunities.

Every year, we work with Capital Link to provide this important reporting to our members.

LPCA Annual Reports

Every January, we publish LPCA's Annual Report in order to educate our members, healthcare stakeholders, elected officials, and the general public about the work of LPCA and Louisiana's Community Health Centers. From clinical quality measures, to information about programs and events, the LPCA Annual Report provides a comprehensive look at our organization and our mission to create a healthier Louisiana.

HCP GeoCare Navigator

The HCP GeoCare Navigator is designed to help inform users about the current geographic extent of U.S. federal (Section 330) Health Center Program (HCP) grantees and look-alikes and was largely designed upon algorithms and reporting methods developed by John Snow, Inc. for BPHC-requested service area analyses.

The information available in the HCP GeoCare Navigator includes estimates of the collective service area of these health centers by ZCTA, including the ratio of HCP grantee and look-alike patients reported in the Uniform Data System (UDS) to the target population, the change in the number of those reported patients over time, and an estimate of those in the target population that remain unserved by HCP grantees and look-alikes reporting data to the UDS (but may be served by other providers). This is a FREE resource.

National Data from NACHC

The National Association of Community Health Centers collects data, performs analysis, and applies information to empower communities in their efforts to improve public health. NACHC also educates the public, health officials, and decision-makers at the local, state, and national level about the critical role of health centers in promoting access to high quality, affordable health care that reduces disparities and advances community well-being.

AmeriHealth National Highlights

The America's Health Rankings® 2023 Annual Report, released in partnership with the American Public Health Association, continues to provide a comprehensive look at health across the nation.

This report highlights the record-high and rising prevalence of chronic conditions, as well as stark disparities by geography and nearly every demographic group.

The Annual Report, first published in 1990, is the longest-running state-by-state analysis of the nation’s health. This edition examines 87 measures of health from 28 data sources. The report, released in partnership with the American Public Health Association, is supplemented with new data related to chronic condition management and insights from the Texas Association of Community Health Centers, as well as an analysis of Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) international health data.
