Our Advanced Knowledge Networks (AKN’s) create a community of practice, where providers can collaborate, share best practices, and participate in open science and shared research. This collaboration can support rapid-response policy development, clinical outcomes improvement, and precision health.
Data Quality Audits
An AKN enhances existing clinical registries through our multifaceted data audit product so that clients can be assured of the quality of their data. The product offers routine and ad-hoc audits that check the validity, reliability, timeliness, precision, and integrity of registry data. In addition, our team of data experts can provide recommendations and necessary actions for data quality improvement based on the audit results.
Measure Development & Testing
Utilizing the AKN’s Knowledge Interaction Tools, we work with clients to develop new measures or review existing measures for use in their own registry, participation in QPP, or NQF endorsement. Through our partnership with IMPAQ International, we offer a unique mix of talented staff and leaders, including clinicians, methodologists, and data scientists to help our clients expertly navigate all aspects of the measure/development lifecycle.
