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.

HITEQ Highlights: Managing Data as a Strategic Asset: Data Governance Fundamentals

As health centers become increasingly more digitized, there is often a feeling of being data rich but information poor. How can healthcare organizations maximize the value of data and build a data-driven culture? The answer lies in data governance. When managed like any other strategic asset – human resources, capital, facilities, or brand – data becomes a differentiator in the pursuit of high value, cost effective health care. In this webinar, the HITEQ Center presented the essentials of good data management processes and introduce the Center for Care Innovation’s Data Governance Handbook, offering ideas for action and tools to improve data quality, increase data literacy, and maximize access to data.
