NOSORH is working with LilyPad on their Practice Operations National Database (POND) product to support clinics to report and benchmark data. To date, 12 states have enrolled in POND, with 95 clinics reporting data on 336 providers, including physicians and advanced practitioners. Listening sessions will be planned with State Offices of Rural Health and POND users to learn more about the opportunities for improving and reporting on the impact of the work of clinics.

POND is a web-based data collection, reporting and benchmarking application for rural providers including rural health clinics, community health centers, health system satellite practices, and independent physician or advanced level provider practices to collect financial, operational, productivity and compensation factors with five Quality measures added in March 2018.

As you prepare the Flex Funding Extension Progress Report that is due in EHB on May 9, 2018, this tool may assist in addressing the clarified requirement around work with provider-based rural health clinics.
