Working on the data: Facilitator Experience in Small Primary Care Practices Using EHRs and HIT for CVD Quality Improvement
Authors: Jennifer Hemler, Jennifer D. Hall, Benjamin Crabtree, Deborah Cohen, Virginia Brooks, Jennifer Hayes
Findings: Small practices face significant challenges in using performance reports from EHRs and often lack the capacity to generate and use them. Practice facilitators can help practices access and verify reports and learn how to use their data. Training and certification should prepare facilitators for working through these data challenges.
