Update Schedule and Policy

HealthInfoSource.com strives to provide consumers with accurate information about local healthcare providers. All provider and agency data listed on HealthInfoSource.com must be reviewed regularly to remain on the website. Depending on the type of providers, records must be reviewed every 9, 12 or 18 months in order to remain active in the system.

The update procedure is as follows:

  1. When a record is due for updating (every 9, 12 or 18 months, depending on type of provider), an email notification of the required update will be sent to the provider/agency. When an email is not available, staff will call. The email will contain:
    1. Instructions and a deadline (4 weeks) for updating the record
    2. A link to the provider/agency's information
    3. Contact information for problems and questions
  2. Information may be pulled off of the site when 45 days have elapsed without a response from the provider. The provider/agency data will be reposted immediately after being updated.

How the Database Works

The provider database has three different levels or types of data records:

  1. Organizations
  2. Programs
  3. Providers

Organizations
This record is the basic information about a practice or organization, including a description of the kind of healthcare provided as well as location and contact information. All healthcare listings in the database start with this record.

Programs
This record includes more detailed information about services, payment accepted and eligibility. Organizations with more than one program or project will have more than one program record. Small healthcare practices (such as a massage therapist working alone or a physician office with three doctors) typically have one program record.

Providers
Practices have the option of listing individual providers by name. One record is created for each provider. In this record, providers can list educational background and certifications as well as additional descriptive information.
