AHCA Encourages Providers to Enroll in Long Term Care Data Cooperative

Long term care providers are encouraged to enroll in AHCA's LTC Data Cooperative. Currently, over 220 organizations representing approximately 2300 skilled nursing facilities have enrolled. This Cooperative is a provider led initiative that gathers EMR data from nursing homes that can be used for three purposes:  
  1. Provide you with data reports and comparative data to assist with resident care; 
  2. Conduct public health surveillance such as the spread of multi-drug resistant infections in LTC or vaccination rates;  
  3. Conduct effectiveness research about what treatments and practices are most effective among our resident populations.   
The three largest EMR vendors: AHT, MatrixCare and PCC have agreed to send your data to the Cooperative once you enroll. There is no burden, cost, or requirements for individual centers should you choose to participate, thanks to a grant from the National Institute of Aging.  
You can find more information in the attached “why join” PDF or at
To enroll or answer any questions you may have, please contact the AHCA LTC Data Cooperative team at who can email you a copy of the participation agreement to review.
