About Plain Proof

We started as a marketing tool for automated nursing home employee scheduling software but grew into our own once we saw an opportunity to showcase nursing homes in a new way.

The point

Most nursing home comparison and analysis sites (Nursing Home Compare, USNews, A Place For Mom etc etc etc) only show you the most recent quality and inspection data for the facilities you're interested in.

Data as of 90-180 days ago.

If they're keeping things up-to-date.

If you want to know whether a nursing home has been good (or bad) for years, you can't.

On those platforms.

To see whether they've done well or poorly (on their own and/or relative to neighboring facilities) over the past few years you have to know a ton about nursing homes and a ton about large data analysis, and make time to make the comparison plots.

Maybe their plots look like a roller coaster track (which means they're inconsistent).

Maybe their plots are as flat as a board (which can indicate they have good, repeatable processes for delivering care).

We've made this platform to help you see whether a facility is a consistent performer. And where they're getting better (or worse!) through time.

Both on their own and relative to neighboring facilities.

So that when you need to find a good facility you can find one thats been good consistently. Not just right now.

And if you manage a facility we can help you find places to improve and ideas to market to doctors and hospitals so that when you're good, people in your community know it.
