Session #3: Optimizing UDS to Inform Strategy
Tuesday, April 11, 2:45-5:00 pm ET
UDS tables provide the health center with a wealth of information to strategically plan for the future. Submission of the UDS is not a task to complete and then forget until the following year. Data submitted in the UDS is a structured tool to evaluate the current status and inform the health center leadership and Board on ways to identify needs. Service area, patient demographics, staffing, quality, and financial metrics form a picture of the health center and can be trended over time and compared to the state, national, and peer groups. With the ever-changing economy, healthcare landscape, and patient needs, the UDS report can determine and support decisions to strategically expand services, renovate existing space or build a capital project. This presentation will explore each UDS table and its relevance in making strategic decisions for the future of health center planning and growth.
