OVERVIEW: The Uniform Data System (UDS) Annual Training is a full day program covering the preparation of the 2018 UDS Report. The training addresses each of the report’s tables, focusing on changes that may have been made, definitions necessary to complete the UDS Report, and common problems/errors. This training is targeted toward those who are responsible for gathering and reporting the data elements included in the UDS Report, as well as management, finance, and clinical staff who need to understand the definitions and concepts used, and those who use the data in their program management and quality improvement activities.
