Accessing Data for QI

As adoption of EHRs has increased, so have the concerns about ability to access the data needed to drill down into quality improvement efforts or even reporting requirements. Depending on the type of system being used, data may be cloud based, on a remote server, or on a local server. Further, data may be accessible through preprogrammed, ad hoc, or custom reports, but there may be greater challenges to accessing raw data or data that can be analyzed for quality improvement purposes. Resources in this section address these challenges and provide actionable information for accessing the data needed.

Health Center Data Validation Tool

Tool to Validate Adult BMI UDS Clinical Measure Reporting from EHR

This Excel-based tool is designed to support validation of EHR reporting for the Adult BMI clinical measure by comparing results from EHR to results from chart reviews or examination of underlying data. This assists in identifying specific data elements that are not being captured appropriately, either as a result of workflow or EHR report logic, and thereby effecting compliance rates. 

For an overview of how to use this tool, watch this video presentation or email us and we will gladly provide assistance.
