Examples of Available Data

Uniform Data Systems (UDS)

The UDS is an annual reporting system used by U.S. federally-funded health centers to report data on utilization, patient demographics, insurance status, managed care, prenatal care and birth outcomes, diagnoses, and financing.

Health Care Access and Information (HCAI)

HCAI is an annual reporting system used by California CHCs and clinics to report data on community services, clinic staffing, patient and staff language, and financing. CPCA conducts a yearly audit of the HCAI data set to represent primary care and community clinics. This audited data set includes a selection of clinics that emphasize the provision of general medical, dental, family planning, and maternal and child health services. To be included in the CPCA HCAI data, a clinic must identify at least 15 percent of its services as medical or dental or be part of a larger organization that does.
