Providing Technical Assistance to States and Organizations that Engage in Health Workforce Planning
Established to support the efforts of the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis (NCHWA), the Health Workforce Technical Assistance Center (HWTAC) provides technical assistance to states and organizations that engage in health workforce planning. HWTAC conducts a number of initiatives each year designed to provide expert assistance with health workforce data collection, analysis, and dissemination.
Our strength at HWTAC is our experience and knowledge about health workforce research. We offer a wide array of technical expertise to support health workforce planning at many levels. HWTAC’s staff has a history of working with states and organizations to address data and analytic needs in health workforce planning. HWTAC also serves a critical support role for stakeholders in the health services research community and functions as an important extension of NCHWA.
HWTAC is based at the Center for Health Workforce Studies (CHWS) at the School of Public Health, University at Albany, State University of New York. HWTAC was formed as a partnership between CHWS and the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at the University of North Carolina. HWTAC is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
