All states identify a range of required and optional ADS in their licensing or certification requirements or other types of agreements. States list required and optional services for each type of ADS that they license, certify, or otherwise regulate (e.g., for adult day care and adult day health care). The services we included in our review are:
Regulatory Review of Adult Day Services: Final Report - Section 1. Definitions of Adult Day Services
States vary considerably in the terms they use for ADS. For example, Arizona and Pennsylvania license adult day health care facilities , Delaware and New Mexico license adult day care facilities , and Oklahoma licenses adult day care centers . West Virginia licenses medical adult day care centers as a special type of ambulatory h
Regulatory Review of Adult Day Services: Final Report SECTION 1. OVERVIEW OF ADULT DAY SERVICES REGULATIONS This section provides a brief overview of states' approaches to regulating ADS providers in key areas and highlights similarities and differences among them.

This study uses data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth--1979 cohort (NLSY79). The NLSY79 is a large, nationally representative, omnibus survey sponsored by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. 3 Over 12,000 youths ages 14-22 were first interviewed in 1979. They have been re-interviewed annually through 1994 and biennially since. The

To help adolescents and adults without access to a usual source of care, the Affordable Care Act (Section 10503) invests in Health Centers. Approximately $11 billion was appropriated over 5 years for operation, expansion, and construction of health centers throughout the nation. About $9.5 billion was provided to (1) Support ongoing health cente

The Feasibility of Using Electronic Health Data for Research on Small Populations. Summary and Conclusions
Relative to other federal data sources like surveys and claims databases, as well as paper charts, electronic health records have some major strengths.
The Feasibility of Using Electronic Health Data for Research on Small Populations. Organizational Conditions Required for Research Combining Multiple Data Sources
Because of the previously mentioned limitations with using data from a single organization’s EHR for research, the ability to combine EHR data with other electronic data sources is often needed to strengthen study results, particularly for small populations. Combining EHR data across institutions can allow for a larger sample size to increase th
The Feasibility of Using Electronic Health Data for Research on Small Populations. Privacy and Security Conditions Required for Research Using EHR and Other Electronic Health Data
In addition to technical requirements for data extraction and analysis, there are legal requirements that complicate the repurposing of EHR data for research. Privacy and security may be of particular concern for small populations, where individuals may be easily identified with just a few variables. In addition, particularly where there may be is
The Feasibility of Using Electronic Health Data for Research on Small Populations. The Need for Research on Small Populations
Research has found differences among segments of the population on nearly all aspects of health and health care. The ability to identify and document such differences is an essential starting point for improving people’s health. The four small populations that we selected illustrate a range of unanswered health and health care questions as well

Rural communities are generally older populations and have higher rates of chronic conditions. 155 People in rural counties are more likely than their urban counterparts to face food insecurity (i.e., reports of problems regarding quality, variety, or desirability of diet or eating patterns) 156 which is associated with risks of diabetes and obe
The Feasibility of Using Electronic Health Data for Research on Small Populations. Vietnamese Americans
The majority of the 1.7 million ethnic Vietnamese Americans trace their origins to the mass exodus that followed the Vietnam War. Concentrations of Vietnamese Americans can be found in California, Texans, Washington, Florida, and Virginia. 39 Vietnamese Americans have a lower median income than do Asian Americans overall. 40 Moreover, the circum
The Feasibility of Using Electronic Health Data for Research on Small Populations. Limitations in Federal Survey Data
There are a number of strengths to primary survey data compared to other primary data sources (e.g., focus groups, case studies) and secondary data (e.g., administrative and claims data). Survey data allows the researcher more control over who is included (i.e., sample frame and sample), the kinds of information that is collected from them (e.g.,
This revised Research Brief, authored by Melissa Favreault (Urban Institute) and Judith Dey (Department of Health and Human Services), presents information about the risk of needing care and associated costs to provide content for policymakers and others considering long-term care financing proposals.
