High quality AKHMIS data helps serve clients and identify gaps in services. AKHMIS data quality has improved tremendously over the past few years, and we continue to refine our processes to make it easier to achieve the best data quality possible.
The ICA Alaska Team created a new report which provides a summary of data quality scores by organization. Scores integrate Universal Data Elements, common data elements, enrollment timeliness and annual assessment standards to give a holistic summary of each organization’s data quality. This summary Data Quality Performance Scorecard will be sent to data quality contacts at AKHMIS-participating organizations this month when the Data Completeness Report is sent. In future months, only the new Scorecard will be sent, but organizations can run the detailed Data Completeness report themselves for specific information about correctable errors.
Look for an announcement from ICA next week about upcoming training on how to read the new Data Quality Performance Scorecard. Please take time to look at the new Scorecard prior to attending the training, and bring your questions.
