Training Description

The Uniform Data System (UDS) in-person training is a full day program covering the preparation of the 2016 UDS Report. The training addresses each of the report’s tables, including a discussion of the changes that have been made and the definitions necessary to complete the Report. The UDS training is aimed at those who are responsible for gathering and reporting the data elements included in the UDS Report, as well as management and clinical staff who need to understand the definitions and concepts used and those who use the data in their program management and improvement activities.

Review and Submission Process Deadlines and Dates

Grantees, look-alikes, and certain primary care clinics funded under the HRSA Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) will submit their UDS Report by February 15th. These clinics will then work with their reviewer to correct any possible errors not identified electronically by the EHB, so the UDS reports are finalized by March 31st. Once finalized, BPHC and BHW will not permit further corrections or amendments.
