ANFP Benchmarking Programs

ANFP launched its first Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Benchmarking program in March 2017 with more than 700 registered participants. Each year, ANFP conducts a benchmarking survey so that trends and changes over time can be reported in subsequent years.

Now in its fourth year, the Skilled Nursing Facility Benchmarking Program has more than 1,200 registrants. ANFP has expanded its initiative and is pleased to offer an all-new Acute Care Benchmarking Program beginning March 2020.

Topics covered in the benchmarking programs include facility demographics, personnel information, key financial stats, foodservice operations, nutrition information, business operations, and safety and sanitation practices.

Participants in the program enjoy 24/7 access to the results. They can download reports based on the entire nation or choose to filter reports based on facility ownership, number of residents, and geographic location, among many other filters.

Confidentiality is key to this initiative. ANFP has partnered with Dynamic Benchmarking to host the program and maintain confidentiality. Individual facility information is viewable only by that facility's registered participants.

Don't miss your opportunity to participate in these important programs! Register now to access the survey that will open on March 1, 2020. Registration to participate in these programs is FREE!
