NHIA Data Initiative


What's Next

Building a Data Infrastructure

NHIA understands that confidentiality and security of all types of provider-submitted data is critical to the participation of members in data projects. In order to achieve the level of provider participation necessary to deliver sufficient data to support the NHIA data initiative objectives, the tools and processes used to extract the data must guarantee that the data is secure and accurate. NHIA is actively engaged in the development of new programs and tools that will automate and facilitate an accurate and secure transfer of data for all data initiative projects.

Phase II Provider Survey

NHIA is preparing for a second provider survey to update the industry data collected in 2010.  A first of its kind, the 2010 report defined the size and scope of the infusion industry, and provided an in-depth analysis of multiple data points such as the number of patients by age and therapy categories; revenue by therapy and payer type and full-time equivalent staffing for key positions; and providers' pump utilization. The Phase II effort will update our industry profile and offer providers additional opportunities to benchmark their individual organizations.
