Ensuring Quality Data

Back to 2019 Annual Report

In light of value-based payment implementation to reduce health care costs and improve efficiency, Rochester RHIO is key to ensuring quality data and adherence to federal and state guidelines. RHIO has worked diligently to identify gaps between health care data currently collected by clinicians and community organizations, and the emerging data requirements for quality reporting. 

Approximately 20% of clinical care documents (C-CDAs) are initially incomplete. Reporting can be arduous and repetitive for physicians and their clinical staff—and RHIO has stepped in to help the community, with great success.

Through its ever-deepening relationships with the community’s healthcare providers, and grant support from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation, RHIO’s Medical Director flags missing data elements, then contacts physicians directly to help them understand the importance of data quality and operating requirements. In parallel, RHIO helps organizations identify data gaps where Common Clinical Data Set elements vary in electronic health records (EHR) systems and require a vendor update.
