A driving force for health equity

UDS Reporting Within Epic Hyperspace Now Available

On Friday August 23rd OCHIN went live with UDS reporting tools in Epic. Since the launch, 30 % of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) have visited and interacted with the reports and we have received positive feedback on the tools.

OCHIN members who report for UDS will be required to use these built-in Epic tools for 2019 reporting. There is still time this calendar year to make changes that will impact your 2019 UDS performance, and improve your organization’s standings for the HRSA Quality Improvement incentive awards next year. We strongly recommend FQHCs start looking at their Epic Hyperspace UDS reports now, in order to get comfortable with the new features.

Epic UDS tools allow you to easily monitor, improve, and report UDS performance by:

  • Generating reports for various time periods throughout the calendar year

  • Drilling down to patient-level detail for UDS measures

  • Accessing reporting logic for UDS measures

Access training information on Ella, OCHIN’s LMS, and make sure to attend open office hours if you or your team have  any questions about the tools. If you play a role in supporting UDS performance or reporting in your organization, we suggest making yourself a watcher on the UDS Reporting Wiki, where you will find information on validating data, expected differences with Business Objects UDS reports, and much more. Make sure to attend Analytics and Quality Reporting to stay up to speed on all things quality reporting!

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Jessie Robertson (robertsonj@ochin.org), Program Specialist, Quality Metrics, and Population Health & Analytics.
