About The Training
The Uniform Data System (UDS) 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. This training will also discuss the proposed 2017 UDS reporting changes to alert health centers of data collection needs.
This training is intended for 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.
Presenter – Art Stickgold
Art focuses on program planning, development, evaluation and training in areas associated with primary health care. Art has primarily worked 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. Art has experience with on-site evaluation work for the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). Currently, this includes Operational Assessments and Performance Reviews. A specialized area of Art’s work has revolved around the management information systems used by the BPHC. When UDS was created to replace the BCRR, Art had responsibility for revisions to the manual, redesign of data collection instruments and initial development of all computer software used to receive, analyze and report on the data. Since that time, Art has continued in his editing and supervision roles.
Registration is now closed.
Note* Due to an overwhelming response from IPHCA members for the upcoming UDS Training, we have been forced to limit the number of attendees to three (3) staff per health center. We hope you understand that this action is only necessary to allow for additional IPHCA member health centers to participate in this annual training.
