Lindsay B. Schwartz, Ph.D.



The Long-Term Care Statistics Branch at the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) released new products from the 2014 wave of the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP). The new products include the Long-Term Care Providers and Services Users in the United States—State Estimates Supplement: National Study of Long-Term Care Providers, 2013–2014, which includes data on all five long term care sectors (residential care community which includes assisted living, nursing home, home health, adult day services center, and hospice). 

The report covers various characteristics including organization, staffing, services provided, practices such as screenings, and special care (e.g. dementia care). NCHS published information on the use of electronic health records and health information exchange among residential care communities and adult day services centers. Two new QuickStats were published using 2014 NSTLCP data, these new charts compare staffing hours across sectors and one comparing selected services provided across  residential care communities and adult day services centers.
