Promoting and supporting quality, effective management, collaboration, and use of data to enhance community-level response to Diabetes in the Great Plains Area.
GPTEC was funded through the Special Diabetes Project for Indians (SDPI) to provide technical assistance and training to IHS, tribal, and urban (I/T/U) partners within the areas of diabetes data and its utilization for clinical quality measurement and to support diabetes prevention and treatment.
To accomplish these objectives, GPTEC worked with GPTCHB’s Business Planning & Development Manager, Beth Lee – who also brings invaluable expertise, experience, and training opportunities regarding RPMS, ICD-10, and clinical coding and their applications to the team – and Great Plains Area IHS and tribal program staff as well as other partners to complete several deliverables:
- Developing and disseminating data quality resources that highlight and support the importance of data quality, the intersecting producers and consumers of Diabetes data and their roles in ensuring data quality, and how tools like ICD-10 and the RPMS Diabetes Management System (BDM) package can be utilized for this purpose, as well as clinical quality measurement and other key activities (pending) – see the SDPI Best Practices/Diabetes Audit cross-talk and the data quality training below (more coming soon);
- Facilitating a 2-day Diabetes Data Training and Roundtable, which included the sharing of insights from the field, training on Diabetes databasing and community-clinical linkage, and an opportunity to discuss and plan surrounding enhanced coordination at the local level (April 25-26 2017 – report pending);
- Preparing a data quality infographic (see below);
- Preparing a 2016 Diabetes Audit Data Report, highlighting data linked to key SDPI and other programmatic best practices and priorities (see below).
In response to feedback from its partners, GPTEC is also conducting ongoing communication with other areas and TECs and pursuing collaborations with Great Plains Area IHS regarding innovations in the tracking and databasing of SDPI data with the hopes of addressing this priority in the future.
Current & 2014 Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) Best Practices & Diabetes Audit Indicators
GPTEC developed, based upon input and with guidance from partners at a variety of levels, a cross-talk of SDPI Best Practices and related Diabetes Audit indicators to assist programs in speaking to impacts across the community-clinical spectrum
Data Quality Resources
GPTEC developed and has delivered in several venues a presentation regarding public health, data quality, and the importance of data systems and their integration.
