ANFP Benchmarking Programs
ANFP launched its first Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Benchmarking Program in March 2017 with more than 700 registered facilities. After closing out its seventh year, the SNF Benchmarking Program had 1,250 registered facilities.
The Acute Care Benchmarking Program was launched in January 2020 and was built from the ground up by a five-member advisory panel working in various settings, from a small critical access hospital to a large teaching hospital, as well as representation from a supply chain company. After closing out its fourth year, the AC Benchmarking Program had nearly 200 operators registered to participate in the survey.
Participating in ANFP’s Benchmarking Programs allows you to better understand what makes your facility successful, leading directly to an action plan, improving productivity, and gaining strategic advantage.
As a participant, the information you provide through the process of a survey will be aggregated with all other participants, and reports will be available to you immediately upon submission. The data collected will provide you with key information that will become more valuable over time.
In addition, participants may enjoy 24/7 access to the results. You may 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.
If you are the Foodservice Director of a Skilled Nursing or Acute Care facility, or both – this is for you! Your participation will award you with one (1) general continuing education (CE) hour for each registered survey that is completed between March 1 and April 30, 2024.
