Promoting and supporting quality, effective management, collaboration, and use of data to enhance community-level response to Diabetes in the Great Plains Area.
GPTEC has been 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 is working 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 Nancy Haugen, the GPA-IHS Area Diabetes Consultant, and 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);
- Facilitating a 2-day Diabetes Data Training and Roundtable, planned to include 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 (planned for April 2017);
- Preparing a data quality infographic (pending);
- Conducting data quality training (see below).
In response to feedback from its partners, GPTEC is also conducting ongoing communication with other areas and TECs regarding innovations in the tracking and databasing of SDPI data with the hopes of offering new alternatives in the future.
