Analysis of UDS Clinical Quality Measure Performance by Health Center Telehealth Use

Updated in Sept. 2020 with CY2019 UDS Data

The below analysis is based on Uniform Data System (UDS) reported by health centers (both 330 funded and Look Alikes).  Performance on Clinical Quality Measures is derived from Tables 6B and 7 (with the exception of the prenatal measure, which is not included). Telehealth Use is from Question 2 of the UDS’s Other Data Elements form, which asks Did your organization use telehealth in order to provide remote clinical care services [in reference year]? Yes or No. 

Health centers that report using Telehealth, on average, report slightly higher performance on all clinical quality measures than those health centers that report that they do not use telehealth.
