These data sources can generate an immense amount of data about your practice. They also offer a valuable resource for assessing your practice.
1. Electronic Health Records (EHR)
Created throughout your practice as your organization takes on new patients, schedules appointments, and documents prescriptions and care, and daily billing and claims.
2. Patient Registries
Collections of standardized information about a group of patients who share a condition or expertise. Typically created by researchers, patient registries exist for rare chronic diseases.
3. Population Data
This data includes statistics and measures of specific populations. Such information can be leveraged to provide insight into trends in need for care and the likelihood of denied claims or delayed payments.
