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.
Many of the links listed below are public information resources published by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Health Center program grantees are required to submit this data to the federal government on an annual basis.

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.

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.

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.
