HealthEfficient Case Example

Case Example: NACHC worked with a network partner on the COVID Multi-State project called Building Capacity of Community Health Centers to Respond to COVID‐19.

The Informatics Team

-Worked with the network to learn about the Data Dictionary, which describes all the terms used in the electronic health record system (Chris Utman at Health Efficient could explain)

-We discovered the HCCN did not have an easy way of extracting the data shared with them by their member health centers.

-The NACHC team worked with them to change the terms in their Data Dictionary so that their local system at the point of care could find those terms (mapped the terms). (Raymonde on NACHC Informatics team could explain)

-We then found that the local data from the health centers did not match those terms, so we helped them re-identify them to match and spoke with their vendor to improve the way they extracted data for the future. (Get Julia or Ray to talk about why this matters)
