Health Data Analysis Toolkit
Health data analysts have responsibility for acquiring, managing, analyzing, interpreting, and transforming data into accurate, consistent, and timely information for a variety of clinical and business needs. The newly revised AHIMA Health Data Analysis Toolkit provides guidance that will assist health data analysts in developing the skills needed to balance "big picture" strategic vision with the day-to-day details involved in managing data in their organizations. The toolkit includes descriptions of various data capture methods and best practices, operational roles and responsibilities including sample job descriptions, examples of how to appropriately present data, and a glossary of associated terms. The toolkit contains five appendices including a sample data dictionary, a study report and request form, sample data definitions, a discussion of data collection related to meaningful use, and a description of the importance of proper collection of data for clinical quality measures.
