The 2019 Uniform Data System (UDS) manual is now available on the HRSA website and provides an overview of the UDS as well as instructions for completing each of the required data tables and submitting the UDS report.
The reporting period opens on January 1, 2020 and closes on February 15, 2020.
Changes for 2019 UDS reporting include:
Better data capture on mental health and substance use disorder services provided by health centers
Reporting virtual visits in the UDS
The addition of an electronic-specified statin therapy for cardiovascular disease clinical quality measure (CMS347v2)
Workforce development data
The Preliminary Reporting environment (PRE), created to leverage reporting efficiencies, will be available in the fall and allows health centers to access the offline reporting tools before the reporting period opens.
