Ease the UDS Struggle

UDS Reporting is right around the corner… are you ready?

What is the UDS Report?

The Uniform Data System (UDS) is a standardized data set and annual program requirement defined in Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. Each year, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), as well as look-a-likes, must report on their performance. This data is vital to further expand access, address health disparities, improve quality, and reduce costs of health care.

The core set of information includes patient demographics and characteristics, staffing and services provided, clinical processes and outcomes, as well as cost and revenues. HRSA uses this data to further expand access, address health disparities, improve quality, and reduce the cost of healthcare. The submission of the UDS Report begins January 1st and ends February 15th.
