The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) have partnered to modernize HRSA's Uniform Data System (UDS) and transform UDS from reporting aggregate data at the health center level to disaggregated and de-identified data at the patient level. Uniform Data System Patient Level Submission (UDS+) implementation will begin with the 2023 UDS reports that health centers will submit by February 15, 2024.
Patient-level data will better support health centers with identifying and analyzing important factors that influence care seeking behavior, quality of care, and health outcomes. Additionally, these data will better inform resource and intervention investments, Health Center Program technical assistance strategies, as well as improve efforts to address health disparities. This session will review review Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) standards and describe UDS Patient Level Submission (UDS+) purpose, submission requirements, and how implementation will support Health Center Program health equity goals.
