Empowering families to advocate for quality nursing home care


‘HO-HUM’ Long-Term Care Provider Search Page Leaves Consumers Wanting More

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission finally unveiled its Long-Term Care Provider Search page after being “unavailable” for weeks.  Here are Families for Better Care’s initial thoughts on the site’s redesign and new functionality:

👍THE GOOD: The facility search engine is superb. Data return is crisp with facility information compiled cleanly into easy-to-find subsets. We believe the site’s navigation is among the best we’ve ever seen among states with similar consumer databases.

THE BAD: Missing inspection reports and no inspection data aggregator are glaring omissions that make the overall experience “ho-hum.”

A good start, but more upgrades are still needed to make the site a regular return for families.

Overall grade: C+
