Major gaps currently exist in the availability of health care workforce data. Institute of Medicine's recommendation No. 8 insists on building infrastructure for collecting and analyzing data regarding the numbers and types of professions that exist statewide. This information is crucial for implementing fundamental, wide-ranging changes in the preparation and deployment of the nursing workforce and is vital across all health care professions to achieve a fundamental transformation of the system and determine future needs.

Keys to improving workforce data:

  • core data sets on health care supply and demand;
  • surveillance of health care workforce market conditions and
  • health care workforce effectiveness research.
