We All Do IT: UDS and Reporting Software

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 | 3-4 p.m. ET

Each year, every community health center program is required to submit data for HRSA’s Uniform Data System (UDS). Technology can help in the process, but with several IT vendors promising fast and easy solutions, it can be an overwhelming decision as well as a frustrating process once we realize that there is no one-size-fits-all product. The tweaking of product and process has become one of trial-and-error for many programs.

This webinar will review UDS reporting software and showcase the experiences of two Health Care for the Homeless grantees. The presenters will describe the products they used, how they took EMR/EHR data and translated it into UDS reporting categories, and ultimately how reporting improved the quality of care for their consumers. Throughout the webinar, presenters will offer tips, suggestions, and other resources. After the presentation, speakers will participate in a live Q&A session with the audience.

Presenters:

  • Susan Friedrich, MBA, PMP, Managing Director, JSI (Bow, NH)
  • Chuck Amos, MBA, Director of Performance Improvement, Health Care for the Homeless (Baltimore, MD)
  • Chris Espersen, MSPH, Independent Contractor, Past President of MWCN (Franklin Park, IL)
