HITEQ UDS Clinical Analysis Dashboard

This webinar discussed and demonstrated the newly developed web-accessible dashboards for the HITEQ UDS Clinical Quality Analyses which contain a variety of visual and data views of the information reported in the UDS across time and across measures, providing both individual and network organization levels of content, including comparison to other groups of health centers.  The information presented is specific to the organization that is logged in and content will vary based on the type of organization.  The webinar covered accessing the dashboards, the content available, manipulating the views, interpreting the results, and where to find additional tools and resources based on the information found.
