reVITALize Gynecology Data Definitions
Common data definitions play a central role in robust performance measurement and clinician feedback for quality improvement. It is critical that definitions and data elements are harmonized across all organizations, electronic health records, clinical and patient registries and research databases. The work of the reVITALize Initiative will assure that data sharing and aggregation can be used to provide the kind of quality information needed to provide the best possible care for women.
The reVITALize Gynecology Data Definitions Conference will take place December 5-7, 2013 in Arlington, Virginia and will serve to bring together national leaders in women’s health care for 3 days of intense, debate and discussion around the definitions of data elements utilized throughout gynecology.
The goals of the conference are:
- To standardize gynecology data definitions for performance measurement, registries, research, and electronic health records.
- To prioritize the data elements to be collected by initiative participants so that future data aggregation and coordination will be possible.
- To reinvigorate robust gynecologic data collection.
The conference will focus on refining data element definitions within the following topic areas:
- Adolescent and Benign Gynecology
- Breast and Cervical Issues
- Pain and Bleeding
- Reproductive Planning
- Urogynecology and Menopause
Following the work conducted at conference and any subsequent follow up work, the refined data element definitions will be made available for review and Public Comment in mid-2014. Information regarding Public Comment participation will be made available on this page.
