Implementing MSQC Data Integration
Data integration is the process by which hospital IT can supplement patient records with additional information without the need for manual abstraction from the SCQR. This process can greatly increase the efficiency with which cases are abstracted and completed by reducing the amount of fields which must be filled out manually.
The documents on this page serve to inform both hospital IT and SCQR staff as to how data integration will be set up and function for the MSQC workstation. When your site is ready to begin the process of integrating with ArborMetrix please start by reading through the documentation below and viewing the introductory video. If you have questions or need further information, please contact ArborMetrix technical support at MSQCDataIntegration@arbormetrix.com.
