CANCELLED - MURAL Series: How to Obtain Latino Population Integrated Data Sets from Epic@UNC

Thu. 22 Oct, 2020 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This event has been cancelled.

This presentation provides ideas on how to obtain, from Epic@UNC data, an integrated data set for the Latino population at UNC Health using a proven strategy for Perinatal data. This strategy includes:

  • The use of Business Objects/SQL to extract and derive data elements
  • Contextual design to improve data capture, data snapshots – rather than databases as sources for integrated data sets
  • A council of representatives of OB areas at UNC Health hospitals to approve OB changes to Epic@UNC
  • Multidisciplinary teams of data analysts and clinicians for data management and criteria definition for derived data elements

The Perinatal Integrated Data Set is currently used at the Department of OB/GYN at UNC SOM to provide information for improvement of patient care, quality/process improvement, and research.

Join the Multilingual Research Advancement for Health (MURAL) program and Randall Blanco, MSCE, MBA, PMP for the first edition of the Fall 2020 MURAL Multilingual Research Capacity Building Lecture Series. Blanco is a data scientist specializing in health care data management with emphasis in data extraction from Electronic Health Record Systems to obtain information and data insights to help with decision-making for patient care, quality/process improvement, and research. He is the Director of Health Information for the UNC Center for Maternal and Infant Health, Director of the Perinatal Research Center, and an Honest Data Broker between NC TraCS and the Department of OB/GYN at UNC SOM.
