About Jeff Porter

Jeff Porter is the special projects director for AHCJ and plays a lead role in planning conferences, workshops and other training events. He also leads the organization's data collection and data instruction efforts.

AHCJ members will now get special access to data tools, thanks to an agreement the organization has made with Carevoyance, a company that provides health care data from public and private data sources.

Carevoyance

This new member benefit allows AHCJ members to use data – at no cost – to enhance their health reporting with detailed information about health care providers. AHCJ is working with Carevoyance to provide data covering hospitals, physicians, laboratories and other providers.

You can find information about provider specialties, finances, referrals, affiliations, patient demographics, prescriptions and basic contact information. AHCJ members can search by geography, names, specialties and more.
