Managing data is essential to improving trauma care. The TETAF Hospital Data Management Course (HDMC) is designed to improve the skill sets of the data entry specialist specific to data input, data abstraction and statistical reporting.
This course is offered virtually via Zoom.
Read what past leaners have to say about the course:
"I was able to learn some information I needed to implement to my everyday work, understood how to use the ICD-10-CM and the ICD-10-PCS, and the difference between both codebooks."
"I have a better understanding of hospital events and how to follow the NTDB Data Dictionary and appropriately abstract the record. I have learned how to utilize the trauma registry to pull meaningful data for my trauma center."
"I learned some of the basic and important parts of data abstraction from the patient charts exercises we did. This helped me practice abstracting the correct diagnosis and times."
"I have a better understanding of why quality data is important, where to find a lot of the data and how the data is integrated into the numbers."
