Collecting Patient Data: Improving Health Equity In Your Practice
Collecting Patient Data: Improving Health Equity In Your Practice is a 15-minute e-learning module on how to develop a standardized process for collection of patient demographic data and how to use patient demographic data for quality improvement initiatives related to population health. In addition to the learning module, this learning activity will also include job aids and a post assessment that will take a combined 30 minutes to complete. Research shows that most physician practices do not collect these data, or they do so in non-systematic and unreliable ways. Among those who do collect these data, very few use them to help address disparities. Targeting physicians, this module will demonstrate the value of instituting a standardized process for patient demographic data collection and will include a case study on how to use patient demographic data to analyze hypertension control treatment outcomes across populations in clinical care and mitigate gaps in treatment outcomes. By ensuring accurate risk adjustment using patient demographic data for population health analysis, physicians may increase their clinic revenue and secure their practice sustainability.
