Agenda

We will have one live session on Friday, June 12, 2020, and all other sessions will be held as on-demand downloads with a virtual Q/A setup so that you can contact speakers with questions or to receive additional information. Each session will have a vendor that will discuss his/her services and introduce the speaker. The agenda is largely the same as what had been previously advertised, except the sessions are now on-demand and available for you to view in the convenience of your own home or office.

Forging Greatness through Data Quality Improvement

The Office of Vital Records has created a new Data Quality unit and will be working closely with hospital staff to ensure data integrity, quality of documentation and the reporting of timely birth and death information. Quality reports of reported birth data will be demonstrated and discussed. A facility report will be introduced in the Fall of 2020. The development of a new Electronic Birth Registration System (EBC) will begin in 2020 and hospitals will play a key role in the process. Mississippi Vital Records wants the HIM Directors and staff to be knowledgeable of this new process and tools they can use to improve their data quality at their facility.
