This course provides essential knowledge to understand and improve data quality within healthcare organizations such as government agencies, insurance companies, and hospitals. In this course, students will learn the concepts, strategies, methods, and tools necessary to respond to the growth in healthcare data and the need to maintain high-quality data. The course first introduces data quality problems, their root causes, and their impact on healthcare costs, quality, and outcomes. The course then discusses data-quality dimensions (e.g., accuracy), how to measure data quality along those dimensions, establishing a data-quality strategy, and implementing data quality management. The course also elaborates on how data governance and stewardship must function together to support data quality.
