The CDC Wants to Hear From You!

Lindsay Schwartz

The most reliable information comes directly from providers like you. In order for policy makers to make solid, evidence-based decisions about long-term care in the U.S., it is essential that the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) collect data from the 2,090 residential care communities invited to participate in the 2018 National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP). If your residential care community was randomly selected to represent not only your residential care community, but also other comparable residential care communities across the United States. Without your help, it may be impossible to make accurate estimates about the amount and types of care provided to residents in residential care communities like yours. NSLTCP data will provide benchmarks, which will allow you to compare your residential care communities with other communities like your own. AHCA/NCAL and the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL) support this research and regularly use data from the study.
