Feds post 50 states of LTC provider data

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

A federal agency has just published a big batch of fresh, state-level long-term care provider information.

Because the information comes from a federal agency, not a private company, agents, brokers, financial planners and other financial professionals can use it in marketing proposals, blog posts and social media campaigns without paying for the information or getting information from the source.

The National Center for Health Statistics, an arm of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, prepared the data in the new document using results from a survey conducted in 2013 and 2014. The new document is a supplement to a summary document the center released in February.

The new document gives detailed data on home health agencies, hospice services providers, nursing homes and residential care communities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

For Tennessee, for example, the authors of  the new data supplement show that Tennessee has about 50 adult day care providers with space for a total of 1,600 people; 100 home health agencies; 60 hospice services providers; 300 nursing homes with about 37,000 beds; and 300 residential care communities, are assisted living facilities, with room for about 17,400 people.

About 37 percent of Tennessee’s nursing homes and 22 percent of its residential care communities are located outside of the state’s big cities.

The percentage of provider employees who are registered nurses ranges from 3.1 percent at the residential care communities up to 52 percent at the home health agencies.

The percentage of the providers that are Medicaid-certified ranges from 27 percent for the residential care communities up to 92 percent for the nursing homes.

The average nursing home in the state has enough beds for 115 people but is serving just 91.
