The effective collection and management of data is fundamental to understanding the operation and performance of community health centers. Each year, health centers are required to report on their performance using the measures defined in the Uniform Data System (UDS).

CHAD’s data team is equipped to assist health centers with collecting and reporting their UDS data to fulfill federal requirements, and extracting and interpreting that data to support their planning, operations and marketing efforts. CHAD provides training and technical assistance for UDS and other data points, including:

                   • Needs assessments
                   • Census data
                   • Navigating the UDS Analysis Database (UAD)
                   • Comparative information about UDS measures in the Dakotas
                   • Budget Period Renewal (BPR)
                   • Service Area Competition (SAC)

                   • Designations:
                           • Medically Underserved Area (MUA)
                           • Medically Underserved Populations (MUP)
                           • Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA)
