Impact Makers Approach

EFFICIENT. AFFORDABLE. FAST.

The Impact Makers approach to FHIR focuses on improving data quality through our proven eight-step process.

A key element in the Impact Makers approach to data quality for FHIR is the application of data quality measures to source data.

Our approach uses these steps:
  • Discovery: Identify potential data quality issues.
  • Profile Data: Review sample data and existing data creation and usage processes to provide context for business rules discussions with Data Owners and Business Data Stewards
  • Develop Business Rules: Work with Data Owners and Business Data Stewards to review and documented business rules and capture and refine undocumented rules.
  • Define Metrics: Define objective metrics and acceptable thresholds of compliance against which to measure agreed upon levels of quality.
  • Evaluate Data with Metrics: Execute business rules against production data and evaluate results. Utilize acceptable thresholds set by the Data Quality team to evaluate the data.
  • Findings Review: Review the Findings with the Data Owners and Business Data Stewards.
  • Remediate Anomalies: Implement and execute a remediation process to resolve data quality issues.
  • Monitor Health: Define and implement a continuous monitoring/remediation plan to prevent and/or fix data quality problems in the future.
