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.

Opportunities to Improve Diabetes Outcomes through Electronic Patient Engagement

Opportunities to Improve Diabetes Outcomes through Electronic Patient Engagement

HITEQ Highlights

Upwards of 23 million people are living with some form of diabetes within the U.S. Accordingly, BPHC has outlined goals toward addressing this issue within the community health setting by seeking to decrease the percentage of adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes whose most recent HbA1c was greater than 9%. Key barriers to effective diabetes management may include a lack of patient activation and engagement with their diabetic care plan and difficulty in maintaining regimens that include glucose monitoring, diet and exercise, and adherence to medications.

Electronic patient engagement technologies are having a significant impact on diabetes-related health outcomes and can help to increase patient to provider diabetes care plan involvement and communication. This HITEQ webinar explored use cases and strategies for effective adoption and evaluation of electronic patient engagement diabetes interventions within the health center setting.
