Arthritis Quality Indicators for the Veterans Administration: Implications for Electronic Data Collection, Storage Format, Quality Assessment, and Clinical Decision Support

By Carl A. Williams, Angelia D. Mosley-Williams and J. Marc Overhage

Abstract

The Veterans Administration (VA) uses information technology and performance measures to improve quality and efficiency. The VA stores all patient data electronically. Manual quality assessment audits are performed every three months. They are time consuming and expensive. Automated reviews would be more efficient. But the patient records are neither sufficiently coded nor structured to allow for full machine interpretability
