Technology to Support 'Hands-free' Public Health reporting for COVID and All Reportable Conditions

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Jodie Albert 0 6976

With the highly mobile modern workforce and travel resuming for the general public, it can become increasingly complicated for health centers to ensure proper reporting of relevant cases to all jurisdictions having oversight on either our operational area or the patient’s residence. To address these concerns, reduce public health reporting burden, and ensure comprehensive reporting for optimal public health management, the CDC electronic case reporting effort had created the eCR Now tool and the MedMORPH FHIR app. As of October 1, 2021, more than 9,400 facilities are actively sending COVID-19 electronic initial case reports to public health using eCR Now and related tools. On the basis of eCR Now, CDC is further developing the MedMORPH (Making EHR Data More Available for Research and Public Health) project to also incorporate additional public health and research support. This webinar introduced health centers to both projects, and showed the roadmap toward automated public health reporting without human intervention.

Making Meaning of UDS Data with HITEQ UDS Clinical Quality Dashboards

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Jodie Albert 0 7821

Health centers have the power to analyze their UDS data through the HITEQ UDS Clinical Quality Dashboards, which were recently updated with the latest UDS data to include 10 years' worth of clinical information. HITEQ hosted a webinar to learn about the multiple ways that the dashboards can present your organizations’ clinical data across years, and compare it to customized comparison groups of other health centers, to explore potential drivers of results. The HITEQ UDS Clinical Quality Dashboards have evolved and improved each year to provide new analysis options. The Dashboards present the UDS data in a flexible and readily understandable graphical format and deliver an organization-specific version of the content to each health center, HCCN, and PCA via a web interface built on Tableau. Each organization's access allows them to see the data relevant to their center while protecting the data of other organizations.

Health centers, HCCN, and PCAs joined HITEQ to see how the dashboards can provide them with data to answer many questions such as: 

  • As a homeless health center, how does our clinical quality compare to homeless health centers nationally?
  • As a small health center, which we choose to define as those with <10,000 medical patients, does it appear that our size is a driver of our clinical results compared to other health centers?
  • How have the trends in my clinical outcomes over the past 5 years compared to similar health centers in states that I consider relevant to mine?
