How does one set-up a system to (implement, track or report) UDS measures?

As with other reports, an EHR, practice management system or disease registry can be used to generate the necessary tables.  Each year, HRSA provides a comprehensive manual that gives instructions on what to include in each table and some troubleshooting help as well as issues to watch out for.  Being familiar with the reporting requirements and your system’s capabilities will help you to generate reports with ease.  Most of the tables required in UDS reports are basic, and software systems should be able to generate them without much difficulty.  It is a good idea to engage the help of a vendor or expert consultant if problems do arise.
