Program Information

The Division of Public Health Services has developed the Health Professions Data Center (HPDC) to collect and store key practice and capacity data from all practicing, licensed providers in NH. Data will be used for healthcare access planning and workforce assessment and will ultimately lead to:

  • Federal shortage designations, which brings providers and grant funding to underserved areas of the state;
  • Strengthened recruitment/retention initiatives including scholarships, loan repayment, and waiver programs;
  • The expansion of existing educational programs and employment training programs; and
  • Stronger emergency preparedness.

House Bill 1692, Chapter 114:2, authorizes the State Office of Rural Health (SORH) to collect primary care workforce supply and capacity data:
The State Office of Rural Health, Department of Health and Human Services shall collect and organize data regarding the current and anticipated supply of health care professionals who make up the state’s primary care workforce and the current and anticipated demand for primary care services in the state in the future and report such data to the commission established in section 1 of this act. The state office of rural health shall also plan and budget for a New Hampshire health professions workforce data center which shall collect such data in the future.

On June 16, 2017, Governor Chris Sununu signed HB322 (Laws of 2017, Chapter 131; RSA 126-A:5, XVIII(c)) into law, authorizing participating health professions licensing boards to adopt rules requiring licensees to complete the SORH’s workforce survey during license renewal cycles.

On July 24, 2019, the Governor signed HB 127 (Laws of 2019, Chapter 131; RSA 126-A:5, XVIII(c)), amending the previous statute (HB 322) to mandate workforce survey participation by participating health professions boards and requiring completion of the survey or opt-out form as a condition of license renewal.

(131:2): The State Office of Rural Health (SORH) is charged to collect workforce data from surveys completed by participating healthcare professionals during the license renewal cycles. The SORH will analyze and release aggregated data results to inform policy regarding the current and future needs of New Hampshire’s primary care workforce expanding primary care capacity.
