Health Center 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.  Have any questions?  Looking for something in particular?

LPCA Compensation & Benefits Survey

The purpose of the Compensation & Benefits Survey is to collect and disseminate more specific and relevant employment, salary, and benefits data to FQHCs in Louisiana.  Health centers have found the report a valuable tool in various aspects of the hiring process for all staff, while conducting performance reviews, and in assembling compensation packages that national surveys do not provide.

The data collection period for LPCA's 2020 Compensation & Benefits Survey is now open.  We ask that all completed surveys be returned to Mrs. Yvette Merritt via email ( by COB Wednesday, September 30, 2020.  

The survey tool has been redesigned with feedback from our health center partners to align more closely with the NACHC Compensation & Benefits Survey tool. You will notice in this year’s tool is that we are asking for average salary and benefits information for staff by position from February 28, 2019-March 1, 2020 (essentially pre-covid).  In addition, this year, we are not asking recruitment and retention questions but have instead chosen to focus on questions directed at the impact of COVID on the workforce. 

Your participation in this effort is imperative to our success in producing meaningful and timely data that can be used to inform data driven workforce decisions including moving forward. We look forward to sharing our findings with the network at the end of the year.

Uniform Data System Reports
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.

UDS Mapper
The UDS Mapper 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 UDS Mapper 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).

National Data from NACHC
NACHC 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.
