The Uniform Data System (UDS) in-person training is a full day program covering the preparation of the 2016 UDS Report. The training addresses each of the report’s tables, including a discussion of the changes that have been made and the definitions necessary to complete the Report. The UDS training is aimed at those who are responsible for gathering and reporting the data elements included in the UDS Report, as well as management and clinical staff who need to understand the definitions and concepts used, and those who use the data in their program management and quality improvement activities.
Review and Submission Process Deadlines and Dates
Health Center Program grantees, look-alikes, and certain health centers funded under the HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) will submit their UDS Report by February 15th. These clinics will then work with a UDS reviewer to correct any potential data errors, so that the UDS reports may be finalized by March 31st. Once finalized, BPHC and BHW will not permit further corrections or amendments.
Art Stickgold’s work focuses on program planning, development, and evaluation in areas associated with primary health care and has done extensive training associated with these same areas. His work was primarily for publicly funded, not-for-profit organizations and for federal, state and local agencies with the resources for funding and the responsibility for evaluating these same programs. Major recent efforts have focused on the development and funding of new programs, the design and programming of management information systems for federal and state granting agencies; and the analysis of grantee performance.
