April 2016 VPHIB Compliance & Data Quality Dashboard Reports

Each month, the Virginia Department of Health, Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) provides two reports:  a Compliance Report (CR) and a Data Quality Dashboard (DQD).  The reports are generated and provided to the Director of OEMS, the Division of Regulations and Compliance, and the Rescue Squad Assistance Fund (RSAF) Grants program.  The reports are also posted in the VPHIB Knowledgebase Support Suite for the EMS system.

  • The CR includes data from 3/1/2015 thru 2/29/2016.
  • The DQD includes data from 2/1/2016 thru 2/29/2016.
  • Data is compiled from VPHIB (v2, v3) as of 4/21/2016.

The reasons for non-compliance on the compliance reports are shown below.

  • Quality = Data Quality Poor (Red)
  • NR = Not Reporting (Red)
  • UR = Under Reporting (Yellow)
  • BR = Behind Reporting (Yellow)
  • UR/BR = Under Reporting/Behind Reporting (Yellow)

The scoring ranges for data quality are shown below and are developed as a monthly average:

  • Green/Satisfactory = 98% - 100% (Compliant)
  • Yellow/Below Average = 95 - 97.99% (Compliant, If Isolated Month)
  • Red/Unsatisfactory = 0 - 94.99% (Non-compliant)
  • Black = <0 (Non-compliant)

The quality dashboard will provide agencies with a snapshot of the quality of their data.  Detailed quality reports may be requested from OEMS through support suite.  For agencies using third party vendor software these reports are available in VPHIB (v2) through the upload process (Path = Modules/Reports/Data Transfer History/Data Quality Report).

Note: April's VPHIB Compliance Report includes agencies that have not migrated from version 2 to version 3 by their assigned deadline.

If you have any questions or concerns with the validity of your agency’s status, please contact us by either submitting a ticket at our VPHIB support suite, http://oemssupport.kayako.com/, or by sending us an email to support@oemssupport.kayako.com.

The last page of the report contains a key to help you interpret the report.  Compliant agencies are not listed within the report.

Don’t forget that VPHIB is transitioning to the new version 3 national EMS data standard!  Agencies started moving last July.  Information on the VPHIB v3 timeline and a compliance update is posted at the following link: http://oemssupport.kayako.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/216/47/vphib-v3-revised-timeline
