As critical providers of nursing services in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, temporary nursing agencies, home health agencies, and private duty nurses play a vital role in the statewide health care system as well as in the communities they serve.

To achieve this objective, the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) collects timely and accurate data from nursing service providers. Providers can download software which enables them to enter, save, and email cost report data and related forms to CHIA.

Data collection is likewise critical in order to:

  • establish rates
  • assess current state payment policies
  • respond accurately and promptly to data requests from state legislators and agencies, health care providers, policy organizations, and citizens.
