Data and Research

IPHCA’s Data & Research staff perform various information gathering, aggregating, formatting and sharing of data with IPHCA members and the general public for the purposes of business intelligence, marketplace analysis, advocacy and grant development, including the needs analysis section of the application to obtain federal grant funding under Section 330 of the Public Health Services Act.

Some data are collected from member community health centers and analyzed to produce “benchmark” reports which allows each to compare their own performance with that of their peers. In addition, data are collected from a wide variety of other sources and organized in a convenient, easily accessible manner to assist members in the complex and challenging tasks of practice management, grant applications and more.
