Home-centered care practices and organizations live in a data-driven world. And whether your practice is just getting started, looking to grow, or already well-established, having the right data is essential for making informed decisions, solving problems, and guiding continuous quality improvements.

But where do you find the “right” data?

Here are three common tactics home-centered care practices use to gather the unique business intelligence they need:

“D-I-Y” DataACTION: Internet-based research conducted in-house, or limited to own data

BENEFIT: Inexpensive


  • Time- and resource-consuming
  • Not typically verifiable
  • Often requires further analysis
Proprietary data platformACTION: Build in-house platform using CMS data

BENEFIT: Customizable to meet specific or unique requirements


  • Requires CMS data access license
  • Requires dedicated data analyst(s)
  • Long lead time (12+ months)
  • Estimated investment for the above: $200K+

Data and Value-Based Care: The Critical Relationship

As value-based care (VBC) continues to transform health care delivery, quality metrics, and reimbursement contracts, home-centered care practices face an evolving landscape as they transition away from traditional fee-for-service (FFS) care models. Whether looking to grow or simply maintain their practice during this transformative shift, it’s clear that accurate, actionable, and affordable data will be required for practices to demonstrate their value while aligning their services with patient needs and preferences.
