ScenarioYou are the VP of HIM, and you’ve been tasked with implementing a data governance or management plan for the HIM department. The Quality Director provided you with data on the readmission rates for Rasmussen Hospital and asked you to create a database to store the data. In doing so, your team identified errors in data that may cause errors when loading the data into the database. You instructed your team to compare the errors in the data to the errors when the data was loaded into the database. The comparison of data will be taken into consideration in the plan you are outlining for the HIM department.
InstructionsProvide a comparison of the errors identified in the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program – Sample Data set
HIM4624CBE Mod 7 Deliverable Hospital Readmission Data.xlsx
versus the errors identified in the Hospital Readmission Reduction Database (Import Errors tab).
HIM4624CBE Access file for deliverable 7 Hospital Readmission Reduction Database.zip
Discuss the impact errors in data can have on internal and external reporting requirements and the importance of implementing report standards for internal and external purposes. Create a data governance or management plan for the HIM department that addresses the use and impact primary and secondary data sources have on HIM reporting metrics (keep in mind the errors identified in the sample data set).
The comparison should be completed in a memo format (templates from Word can be used). The data governance or management plan should be specific to primary and secondary data used for HIM reporting.
