Healthcare Entities and Providers use electronic health records (EHRs) to collect, retrieve, and report various types of health data. However, it is our responsibility as Health Information Management professionals to ensure that the data is accurate and complete by using professionals possessing critical Health IT skills.

Data retrieval is an increasingly complex task as EHRs and other new applications continue to churn out huge volumes of data across disparate sites of care. Our team identifies and tracks all data sources that feed into the enterprise-wide data warehouse. An incomplete data inventory leads to incomplete analyses. We have the capability to migrate and integrate data from diverse internal and external sources.
Data retrieval isn’t just about knowing where data resides. It also requires knowledge of health data attributes, including data definitions, value sets, and other administrative and clinical coded content.
Disaster recovery is also an important component of data retrieval. Our organization play a significant role in the development of a formal disaster recovery plan. The HIPAA/HITECH Omnibus Final Rule section 164.308, which took effect on March 26, 2013, requires organizations to develop a contingency plan in the event of an emergency or other occurrence that damages systems containing electronic protected health information. HIM professionals must ensure that this plan includes information about data backup, disaster recovery, emergency mode operations, testing and revision, and applications and data criticality analysis. In addition, The Joint Commission requires healthcare organizations to establish in writing and periodically test a disaster recovery plan.
Data integrity is the foundation of our Health Information Management Plan. Without clean data, any analyses, reimbursement, and clinical decisions can’t possibly be accurate or informed. HIM professionals must ensure that errors within the EHR are corrected and that all source systems include corrections as well. They must also closely monitor the Master Patient Index (MPI), looking for and correcting duplicates and other patient identity errors. As technology (e.g., computerized physician order entry, EHRs, and computer-assisted coding) is implemented, HIM must be at the table to ensure that this technology provides an accurate output of data and that users understand their role in terms of data validation.
Med-Prov works with the client to engage patients to improve data integrity by accessing patient portal and ensuring your systems integrate with the EHR system.
Data analysis and reporting
Data analysis and reporting will only continue to increase as technology allows providers to capture new and critical information. Med-Prov can help identify opportunities for the use of this data to improve business intelligence, clinical care, and decision-making throughout the enterprise.
We are prepared to design requirements, criteria, and metrics to meet requirements for analyses and interpretations. These needs will vary by researcher, clinician, executive, payer, consumer, etc.
When analyzing and reporting data, we ask our clients the following questions:
- From what source(s) was the data obtained?
- Is the data accurate?
- Is the data complete?
- Does the data meet the end user’s need?
