Improve Quality of Data Flowing into HIE

The Data Quality Improvement Project is an analysis performed of ACO members’ Electronic Health Record on each of sixteen data elements. Additional data quality work with Designated Agencies (DAs) to improve the quality of data and usability of data for this part of Vermont’s health care system. VITL will engage providers and make workflow recommendations to change data entry to ensure the data elements are captured. In addition, VITL will perform comprehensive analyses to ensure that each data element from each Health Care Organization (HCO) is formatted identically. VITL will work with the HCOs to perform some or all of the following: (1) The HCO can change their method of data entry; (2) the HCO’s vendor can change their format used to capture data; and (3) a third party could use a terminology service to transform the data.
